I am new to the forum as a user but have used it for advice many times over the last few months. This time I can't find an answer to my question - so I joined so that I could pick everyones brain !!!
My story has 2 parts ! I have a thoroughbred that I rescued in January this year - after lots of vet bills and TLC she is now in good health - so much so that we have been to a few shows and placed in the walk - walk / trot classes.
As we progressed on to bigger things ( like the trot - ha ha ! ) I had shoes put on her - and her movement became even better.
Then at the last show she started to try and trot when I wasnt asking her to - that was 2 weeks ago and everytime we ride she does the same thing. If I let her go and I post with her after a while she seems to bring her back end under like she is slipping underneath me.
Now for the second part ! Her back bone seems to take a dip - not like a sway back - just like a bone is sticking up. My vet said in the past that they thought that it was just needing filled out with muscle - but now she is in great shape and the muscle is all in place and the hollow still hasnt filled in.
My trainer thinks she may have a vertibra out of line - and that because she now has shoes - and now that she has filled out then it is starting to cause her pain - when I ride she said its almost like she is trying to get away from the saddle. She has told me to go and see a chiroprator - which I will do - but I just wondered if anyone ele had any experience of anything like this ???
