    Double longeing for shoulder unevenness?

    Will trotting on the long line or double long lines help with a horse who is slightly uneven? One of my geldings is slightly more developed on his right side. He incidentally also is mounted from the right side - his choice not riders. He's not too bad at the moment, but when he loses. Bit of condition, it often becomes more pronounced.

    Why is it his choice to be mounted from the right side?
    Is he uneven in his movement?
    Is it possible that the rider is sitting or leaning to that one side or he's worked more on that side?

    You could also ride that direction more. The ist thing I would do is get a chiropractor to evaluate and adjust.

    Jaydee, I have absolutely no idea why he prefers to be mounted from the "wrong" side. I din't know who trained him or how. I just figured it's a quirk. One of our workers borrowed ths money to buy him and a mare as cart horses, after two years of no payment dad took the horses. They were broke to ride so now they're cow ponies.
    I haven't noticed unevenness in him or his rider, but will double check. Chiropracters is unfortunately non existent where I live. The local "trainer" claims she knows a body worker? Would that do any good?

    If they need adjusted that can make them uneven. Depends on what's wrong if it would help but it is something to seriously consider.

    I'm very nervous about having someone mess with horses structure unless I know from good authority that they're trained and good at it!!
    My horses are used to being mounted from the left but I wouldn't say they were trained to it and they have no problem with someone getting on from the other side so I wonder if your horse does have some discomfort because it really shouldn't matter to them
