    I would take a look at the tack. There might be something that is causing him pain. I would check out the equipment you are using. If you tack isn't the issue I would definetely take him in an arena and work on fixing the problem with ground work before it gets even more dangerous.

    If this is something new, I would check for something which is perhaps causing him pain in his back or hind end. Is your husband overweight? Does he mount into the saddle roughly (such that the horse might be anticipating a sudden unpleasant punding on his back?).

    We are thinking now he may have been cinched too tight.
    We were told you should be able to get 2 fingers under the cinch when tightened.Hubby says theres no way he could have.I know he didnt do this on purpose, was probably cinching as he always had and Chanees body may be changing(weight).
    And no hubby is not that overweight, this is a big QH.
    We'll find out on next ride, maybe tomorrow.
    Thanks for all the help.
