Uneven pony

One of my ponies bends the wrong way on circles and has a bigger shoulder on one side.

I am struggling to know how to help correct this. She was owned by a para rider before I bought her and think she has a weak side due to her former rider. It hasnt been a problem while we have been hacking out in the walk but now I am schooling her in the school in walk and trot it is very noticable.I want to try even her up.

If you have any excercises that might help us both in the school and for hacking out please let me know

Possibly have the vet out. I had a quarter horse who was not noticeably lame, but over time we noticed one side of his hindquarters was 'taller' than the other (looking straight at his butt one side was noticeably uneven)

Had the vet out and turned out he pulled a muscle (it was on in his hip area) from being cast in a stall and was lame and had to be put on stall rest for a little bit.

Good luck with your pony!

He might need a chiropractor. It'd be a good idea to have one out(:

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!
