critique me and my saddlebred

I have owned my horse for 3 years and when I got her she was a very consistent horse that could trot far above level without any action devices ever being used on her. Then I moved her and she went into part training with another trainer then that trainer didn't have time to train my horse so I had to do the training on her but had no say in her shoeing and the trainer stopped having the chiropractor see her regularly which she needs because she is very roach backed. Now she is a walk-trot lesson horse and she is starting to get back to where she was before. How does that make any sense at all? So tell me the big differences you notice between the years.
So i'll start with the pictures from when my horse was in full training with a well known trainer who had trained since she was 3.

Wow. That's too bad.

I don't know much about riding Saddlebreds. I mean, I used to one one but she was used for fine harness back in her day and then I used her for english and jumping.

Anyways, there's quite a bit of things that changed that are causing her to get worse with her training. First would definitely having no say in her shoeing and what's going on as well as the not having the chiropractor coming out anymore, especially when she really depended on it. Secondly was having the part-time training dwindling down to no work done by that trainer. Now you are having to work with her.

May I ask why you even sent her to part training by someone else? Do you not have enough time to work with her? If she was going so well before hand, why the switch? I can understand moving her to another barn but to have someone else work on her can be a big mistake. Was the trainer reputable?

The trainer that I switched to had worked for the other trainer that did well training her and had helped train my horse when she was 3. That trainer worked at a barn that was significantly closer. But do you think she is now starting to look like she used to?

Not really. I mean, she isn't really hardly lifting her knees and hocks. If this trainer can do what you say he can do, I'm sure he can bring her back. Its just a matter of if he has the time to do it. WHICH I think is a waste if you were paying him to do and it didn't have the "time" anymore.

I would really encourage you to try and get your chiropractor to come out there and work on your horse. Since she hasn't been seen, maybe she can't use her back as well anymore...

She has started to see the chiropractor very consistently since I moved to where she is now with a new trainer. She is now a walk-trot lesson horse as you can see in the last link. She is not in training anymore she just gets ridden by little kids. This is set up for when I go to college. Right now I just pay for shoes, vet and chiropractor. She has been really good for those kids since she doesnt spook at anything! I'll try to get a video of her tomorrow. In the last 2 links I definitely see her lifting her knees more than the one before those.
