My trainer is working my new OTTB in dressage 3 times a week. I am riding him on the off days with 1 to 2 days off. Today when my trainer was riding his stifle slipped slightly. He has never used his hind end in his previous career. We have been working on backing and circles etc. My trainer feels he needs to strengthen his back end. However, if he continues I will get my vet out to look at him.
Has anyone had this experience with an OTTB? I am worried about him. I am fearful it may be serious. I plan to work him light tommorow and give him a couple of days off. Any other suggestions? Thanks!
