Will stringhalt effect jumping?
My parents just bought me a really expensive horse about a month ago and I'm currently showing him in hunters/eq. He's been perfect so far. My farrier came out to trim him for the first time and he noticed that he may have stringhalt.. Before I got him, we got a vet check and he passed and the vet didn't say anything about him having it. When I pick out his feet I notice that he will lift his back leg really high and it shakes. He's fine when I ride and jump him though and he doesn't show any signs of it under saddle. Will this effect his riding and jumping at all?
