He could have so much wrong that might not even start in his back. He needs a full exam by a vet.

He had a full exam from a vet when he had peritonitis.

As I have already said I pretty much only have access to 'dog ad cat vets' and I can safely say I trust my chipractor more.
Also as I previously said, the chiropratcor said the remaining issue in his back is a redult of a lack of muscle across his topline.

He was bad when I got him, built muscle and his back was cleared.
Then he got sick and lost it again and it is sore agin to some extent ut continually improving.

(Coming from someone who is an AVID advocate of horsey chiros, it's just fact... they don't know everything).
My chiro does.... he also checks joints and stuff too...

Tbh it sounds to me as if you don't want to accept the idea that it could be pain. It doesn't sound like your horse is bucking for 'pleasure', all the signs point to him being in pain, especially when you say the problem came back after he was ill. You don't know it isn't causing any issues, if it causes SOME pain with the chiropractor who is to say it isn't causing some pain under saddle?

You asked a question and you got answers take them if you wish.

If I was in your position I would stop jumping until he was no longer in any pain, for the well being of my horse.

No, I totally underrstand that people are in agreeance that it is probably pain, but everyone is getting off topic telling me to get him checked when he has been.

Can someone delete this thread? Its going nowhere haha
I havent jummpd him since by the way, and I care a lot about the welfare of my horse. He gets his back checked every two weeks just about!

Well, if I hadn't heard his history of back pain, I would say he might just bucking out of pleasure. Once you get it cleared up completely by your vet and chiro, that is he is 100% sound, then start jumping again. If he is still bucking at landing, I would then check your riding. Maybe when your landing you are landing on his back to hard, causing pain, who knows. Check his teeth for any possible tooth problem. Last of all, it may just be pleasure bucks. But before you decide its simply pleasure bucks, rule out every other possibly out come.

Lots of horses do buck out of pleasure, actually. Its not a very un common thing. But don't rule out any possible pain issues causing this bucking :) He may seem eager, but many horses are very good about hiding pain.
