Unhappy Not sure where to put this

I have an Arabian and Im just kinda worried about him wanted to see what yall have to say. When he gets his daily workout he trips a lot and somedays he like to get an attitude. Sometimes you can pull the lungeline to you to get him to straighten up and he will just fall. Today he ran past my mom and buck and fell completely on his left side, layed there a few seconds and got up. He seems kinda sore but I didnt see anything wrong. WHAT SHOULD I DO?? Is something wrong with him?????

It sounds like he might have a neurological issue if he's falling completely over and then laying there for a few seconds. But i'm not sure. I'd have a vet perform a neurological exam on him. All horses trip occasionally and some are clumsier than others, but you horse seems like he may have something wrong since when he straightens up he falls, and then can't right himself immediately.

Good luck with him! I have an arabian gelding too...and I would be worried if this was happening to him. Please keep us updated

I agree, it sounds neurological.
Has he had any recent injuries? Is he turned out with other horses?

I would have the vet come out and look at him
