Oooh ok...thanks all. Yeah I just thought I'd ask...is jumpers bump mainly caused by jumping? Or can it really happen to any type of horse (meaning even to a dressage horse or reining)?

" A hunters bump is caused by strain to the ligamentous attachments of the lumbar and sacral vertebrae. These ligaments are most often strained in horses that are used for jumping, so are most common in hunters and jumpers.

The bump occurs from the healing process of the strain, caused by scar tissue that forms in the healing process. So, a hunter's bump does not necessarily mean that that horse is sore in the back area, only that they have previously experienced back strain.
