Lameness in horses back
I used to ride this horse at a barn that I left awhile ago because the barn owner was a nutcase.his name was Bayfly and I loved him more than anything. I was a really beginning rider when I leased him and didn't know anything about horses. Looking back, I think he was lame. His strides were abnormally short and his head always bobbed up and down. He would also favor a certain hoof somedays in his stall. I knew he had back problems. For about a month he would constantly buck and not go forward. At a dressage show once the judge would not let me do my test because she said he looked lame. He was a 21 year old quarter horse with a bad back and shoulders from jumping very high earlier in life.
