Withers - tight?
Ok, so had the chiro out to my horse today, I was unable to be there so my friend went instead. She says my horse is in fairly good order but has tight withers, says its not from my riding or my saddle and that it's old. I got the chiro out because I knew something was 'off'. Just feeling awkward. She suggested lots of long and low riding with plenty of stretching out and moving out. Apparantly it's something that cannot be 'treated' either surgically or medicinally but requires a lot of stretching.
Has anyone dealt with this or could offer advice?
Also, my horse has a low wither and wide shoulders. He's six.
