Mare is in great shape. We ride 4-5 days a week.
Saddle fit isn't the problem. It is treeless, so it does wander down her neck.
I've been curious about a crooper. She does this when we don't have a saddle on too.
Hoof boots are fairly new.
I'm a balanced rider as I ride bareback frequently.
She'll get going on a pretty fast walk going down, which turns into a trot and I don't want to trot down hills.
As soon as the hill is done, she's totally fine.
I'll look into the vertical/lateral that was mentioned.
Does anyone think it could be spinal pain? Hip out?
Thanks for all the advice~ I really appreciate it.
We live in such mountainous area, I really don't want to have to get off and walk her down these canyons.
I would definitely look into a crouper, but I'd question your saddle fit as well.
