We started my OTTB working in dressage. My trainer is riding him 3 days a week. She works him for 1 hour. She has been really working his hind end. Today she noticed a slight slip in his stifle. I am worried. She feels he is out of shape. He has never used his hind end before and doing well. She thinks he is sore. We have been working on backing him several times each ride. He is ridden everyday and gets one or two days off per week. Has anyone experienced this before.
I plan to work him light tommorrow without backing. I have also been rubbing him down with a linament after his workout. If he does not improve I will have my vet look at him. Any words of experience is appreciated. Thanks!
