Cinder & Join Up

As I've posted before, my 18 yr old mare is now retired but I've really been getting into watching youtube vids with loose horses and such...where they follow you around and over obstacles - been thinking of trying it with Cinder! So far we're working on Join Up and staying Joined Up! She'll walk at my side and yield left and right, but takes off when I ask her to trot with me! Little brat...something to work on! Moki took some pics for me though of our first attempt, today was a little smoother and I got her to trot with me 3 times so we're making a little progress!



Head shot


Thinking about it...


Nah






Joining up




And walking with me




She took off when I asked her to trot so I sent her off and we started Join Up again...

Why is she retired? 18 isn't old by a long shot.

Oh no, mentally she's raring to go and she's a darn good barrel horse - but her hips are partially fused to her spine. I *could* ride her, and for a couple months I tried bute, but I didn't like the idea of medicating her for my own gain. I love her to pieces and if retirement is the only way she's not uncomfortable, then that's what my baby gets.

I'm tempted to get x-rays done to confirm there's calcification, but I had a chiropractor out last winter and he said it wasn't even worth him coming out since it had already calcified, couldn't be broken up without consequence.

So now she gets groomed, fed, loved on, and now we're starting to play some ground games! I was wondering though...she'll run and buck with the young'ns out in the field, which means it isn't the movement she has issues with, moreso the weight on her back. What about driving? Just a tiny 2 wheel thing so it's not heavy, but is it not easier for a horse to pull than carry?

Have you had a vet look at her? I would get a second opinion. I'm not sure how someone could tell if a horses hips were fused without X-rays. Driving her would probably be OK anyway.

Every time I ride her she bucks, doesn't matter what saddle, bit, or rider...her purpose in life is to buck. I tried for 6 years to be calm and consistant...during the short time I sold her they sent her to a trainer and he couldn't get her to stop. I bought her back, spent 4 months in the saddle and she was worse than when I bought her so I had a chiropractor out to see her. Next step is x-rays but I can't afford them right now.

I don't mind the bucking, obviously no bucking is prefered, but I don't want her in any sort of discomfort with me on her.
