Sore back.

I think apollo may have had a sore back today. I rode him for the third time yesterday.
Would it be common for a horse to get a sore back after just being started? It seems like it would make sense, but I could be completely off. I just want to make sure..

His saddle should fit, it was checked before I bought it.

A lot of things can make a sore back. He may be sore in some other spot and it moves to to his back. Just because one spot is sore does not mean its just that spot. Give him a few days off. Let me be and watch him. Turn him out and watch him move. Also get his teeth checked.

What is he doing that makes you feel as if his back is sore?

You're going to think I'm a weirdo...

I always stretch and rub all his legs, and rub his chest and back before we leave the barn to work, and today he kind of cringed when I was rubbing his back just past his withers. Everything else was completely normal, he was his normal self.

His teeth are also fine. I check and brush his teeth everyday since he had his incisor pulled.
