Looking more at this picture and thinking about Barrel's response... I'm wondering if it has to do with foot length too. TWH's are positioned so they're sort of crouching a bit on the hind end, meaning they have to pick their feet up more dramatically to move their feet without hitting the ground. I'm not sure how to describe this, but it may be because he's too uphill and toes a little long? Still would like a video, hard to make a judgement like that on just 1 photo

My boy gets hock injections, and the way I know it's time is when his back toes start to get squared off. Don't let the vet blow you off.

We have a twh that does this. He has an old stifle injury and he has to have maintained regular exercise and customed shoes with a lot of heel.

Another thing, if he carried his head like that a lot. Get that bit out of his mouth and use a simple o-ring snaffle. His nose should not be stuck out like that.

I didn't hear him say anything about Kissing Spine. He is is flat shod all the way around. He doesnt trip alot he just drags them its like he's on his tippy toes vs actually sitting back on his toes when he walks. He is a 6 year old, no previous show history. I use him as a trail horse. Yes its fairly new. When I got him 2 years ago he wasn't doing it. The only thing that Im doing differently than what the previous owner does it I keep him in a stall.

Im posting the link to the video of him trotting. I can't upload it here because of the format.
