    Voila! Good News!

    Well, I think I've found out the reason for both Sunny's gaiting issues AND sore back. How lucky could I get?

    Talked to the farrier about him having no shoes in the back and how that might relate to his sore [ness] and he said it is highly possible. Sunny would walk funny to get away from the pain on his newly-unshod hooves (which he isn't used to), stretching out muscles he normally dosen't use, pace because of muscle cramps, I bounce all over his back, and Voila! He's sore.

    I recently had him shod because I will be camping in a park recommended to have all 4 shoes on. Yikes.

    His back IS better though (I'd never go riding in the mountains on a sore-backed horse!). He gaited down the driveway in his handy-dandy little snaffle with a little coaxing, lol, and even tried to run down a hill so I guess he's feeling better :)

    Changed saddles too. My other saddle was too small. We are currently riding Australian. LOVE it. NEVER go back!

    Yay. Thought I'd share.

    I can't figure it out. This is so stupid.

    His back is sore again!

    It just can't be me. It just can't be me..?

    Any ideas, guys? :(

    Maybe post pictures of your saddle on him and stuff? Who knows, maybe he's gained muscle on his back and now the saddle doesn't fit him as well. I know I'm terrible (not saying you are but hopefully you know what I mean) at telling if a saddle fits just by looking at it. I can tell a few things but some of the people on here are amazing at saddle fitting.

    I understand your pain about equine conundrums! Horses are too complicated! Haha =)

    Alright. I took these today.

    First is the Aussie, second is the English. English is just a long shot. Not expecting to to fit... But it might?
