Rolling while riding
Well this is a problem I've never encountered before. Actually, I was rolled w/ for the first time this year, but in Gypsy's defence she was trying to tell me there was something bothering her, I just took to long figuring it out.
So anyway on to my problem, I think my dad's new horse has a rolling problem. He's done it 3 times now, first time we rode him in his pasture, thought it might be a fluke, like Gypsy something was bothering him and he took care of it, but then he did it again the next day. He's not even really rolling, just dropping down, laying on his side and getting back up. Since then we've mostly been riding him on the roads, so it's not been an issue, but today my brother in law was riding him (first time) and on our way to the road we're in the yard (grass) and he dropped down and did a nice big roll (I had to laugh and laugh, because he'd gotten such a kick out of me being rolled with, welcomed him to the club). So starting to look like this may be a problem, I have a few ideas how to handle it, but thought I'd get other opinions.
