I have seen tying up but this didn't appear to be tying up as she would move, she was simply sweaty from her ride. But I think that she return the horse from the workout and then gave her grain before she had a chance to cool off correctly plus it was a different kind of grain so logic makes me think it was most likely colic but this mare doesn't ever like to show normal signs she needs to be more theaterical. Her and her half sister which I own have only coliced once in their lifes and both of them do it with style no kicking and rolling just weird looks and standing funny or in this case laying down funny. Why couldn't they just be normal so we would have to hit our heads trying to over think what was a relatively simple diagnoses. Horses gotta love them

They will still walk around if they are tieing up. Its very similar to colic. Horses are alot more prone to tie up after a ride then they are just to bring in out of the feild ill.

But horses that tie normal start sweating profusing and continue to sweat after they are put back in the stall at least both horses that I have had tie up did this. There first one was when I worked for a trainer who worked the cramp out of this mare trying to get somewhere (didn't agree with) then she was soo tired afterword that we walked her a little bit then put it in her stall and took the water out, she then started sweating more and was crampy in the back. The second one my husband and I were riding in VA mountains and not even an hour into the ride (it was Nov so it was cool and this horse had be ridden all summer and was in great shape) his mare started becoming very sluggish which was odd for her she always lead, then she started refusing to go, and was sweating horribily. I knew from the last time the vet had told me you don't want to make them move (because they don't want to) so we had to drag her onto the road, and my husband had to go get the trailer to take her back. We did electrolytes and selenium and she was fine afterwards. Since my sister's horse wasn't continueing to sweat and didn't act crampy on her back but in her abdomine area. The part that was odd that she kept curlin her lip and then when she did lay down she was laying up right and not kicking at her stomach.
