I wrote about Spice's feet and how they effected her back legs, well I'm not dealing the hard after effects of what the farrier did and didn't do to her feet. Even was a long back Spice use to be able to track up really well, use her back and move out, but now she rather do a shorter choppy stride and takes a lot of work to get her out of it. I know it is her hips, I've been trying to stretch her out daily, a little at a time she is really good at telling me that's enough. But is there anything I can do for her? I know getting her back to where she was isn't going to happen over night, but right now I'm watching her muscling and top line that I did manage to build up disappear, I know how to build a horses endurance and strength and muscle up, I don't know how to rehab a horse that is in pain and has lost so much flexibility.
So what can I do, where to start? Riding her is out of the question at least anything for over 20 minutes and at the walk. No to, get a chiropractor, or body work specialist because there is no professionals like that around, within four hours. Thanks for any ideas, or suggestions.
