Shifted Pelvis

Has anyone ever had a horse who had a shifted pelvis? Just reaching out to get more info. That is what was found on Amber and what she's going back to the vet for Tuesday.

Kind of being a worried mom here, a bit anxious.

A little more info about her case specifically, it's shifted to the right. When you follow her spine down you end up right of center over her pelvis. There also seems to be a little pocket of fluid just behind the point of the hip - but that was discovered by myself and my trimmer, not the vet. So that discovery wasn't a professional one.

No, but my boy has pelvic issues. I feel for you if it isn't something that is due to simple alignment. Rascal has been recovering for almost 2 years. The jury is still out on whether he will remain sound while conditioning and building muscle for his final evaluation.

I'm hoping for the best, but preparing myself for the worst. Best case scenario will be she can be sound enough to jump up to 2' (the vet has said it's possible), worst case will be she just can't be ridden any more. She will have a forever home with me either way. If jumping is out, I'm hoping she could be sound enough to do light dressage work or trails.

ETA: Definitely a waiting game, and it's killing me!

It's the hardest part.
