Ok so I have this beautiful rising 5 year old gelding. For quite some time now he won't canter a circle to the right, he just won't go on the correct leg and the only way I can get him on the right leg is going over a small jump. I thought something might be wrong so I decided to get an equine chiropractor out to take a look at him and would you believe it, both shoulders and his neck was out. I felt so bad for making him work but he wasn't showing any signs of pain.
Anyway, is this normal for such a young horse to have so much wrong. I'm really worried that if I start working him again then they will just pop out again. Also, in about a month I have a rodeo coming up that I was going to enter him in for barrel racing, is this not a good idea now? I really don't want to ruin him, he is such a beautiful horse with the most amazing temperament. Please help. Thanks in advance.
