Well the vet is coming out on Tuesday to see Silver, hopefully we can figure out whats going on and hopefully it will be fixable! I was grooming him the other day and gave him a really really careful going over, his withers are still sensitive to the touch and I found a scar on them that I didn't notice before... so idk

I hope that the vet can figure out what's going on! That'd be such a huge bummer, it's amazing what people will do just to sell a horse sometimes, especially when a little honesty can go such a long way. Silver is lucky that he's with you though, and that you're going to do your best to figure out what's causing him such pain and soreness.

It could be possible that the scar is just from an ill-fitting saddle, but hopefully the vet will shed some light on the situation and it's nothing serious.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

If you're wondering about front hoof soreness take him for a walk then ask him to turn a tight circle. Watch to see if he steps over (good) or if he shuffles or hop steps. Do it the other way as well. If he feet are sore he won't want to step one in front of the other as he turns. This is something bute can hide until it wears off.

He's been sound in his legs/feet.. it's his back that seems to be the problem, Im worried it might be kissing spine.

Here's a picture of me and Amber yesterday! I was in such a wimpy mood, I think silver has destroyed my confidence even more (If that's even possible) so we just walked around for 20 minutes while I tried to remember to breathe and relax

I don't know if you've heard this expression or not: "The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step" -- good for you doing just what you did; keep at it and you'll be back in fine form in no time at all.

I have no confidence when it comes to riding, I've spend 8 years on my arabian with him I have all the confidence in the world and he try's to buck me off when ever he doesn't want to do something. I got my new horse a year ago and after having a little back yard arab all that time moving to a fancy warmblood was hard. He was pushy didn't care if he hurt anyone I've been run over by him so many times. When you used to try and get on him he would take off and I would have to hand on to his side and try not to fall. Then once I was on he would spook and spin at everything. I decided to sell him last winter and I was devastated I felt like I failed. When I decided to sell him he went lame so I couldn't sell him until he got better. I began riding my trainer's horses at the farm and one little mare gave me confidence, (Which is strange cause she would take off with me all the time and my trainer always took my stirrups and still made me jump all the time, but no matter how many times that mare took off and acted like a crazy jumper I was never afraid of her.) When Gershwin got better I began riding him (Fearing for my life the whole time.) to leg him up to sell. I stared out little, just walking, then just trotting a little I would join the beginner lessons that were only walk trot. Then one day I was in the outdoor and a bunch of kids came in with their pony's they were practicing for a game show and asked me if I wanted to join. I used to love games with my arab so I decided why not. That was the best hour I had with him I let go of my fears and didn't fight him instead we just had fun and for the first time I rode him with no fear. From that moment on I felt myself relax and while we still have our ups and downs I don't want to sell him anymore. Even recently I went back home and rode a lesson horse at my friend's barn and I realized just how much I love riding Gershwin now. I'm not saying I'm fearless at all I'm so scared when we are jumping, (We are doing 2'9) but now there are small moments where I can actually think he will take care of me. It's been a long rode, but the meaning of this post is just to say even if you are scared it's worth sticking with. Lots of people at my barn tell me to stop judging myself that I should have more confidence that I can do it so just know if you put your mind to it you can.

You should have him tested for lymes too...in my area I swear like 75% of horses get infected :( My guy didn't even show any signs really but every now and then he'd explode when getting on or right after getting on...vet said nothing is wrong with his back...so we decided to get him checked anddddd it came back positive...treated and now he's been doing so good!

Well some new info has surfaced! I was sent a link to a tumblr page from a forum member who stumbled across it while googling Irish sport horses. The person who runs the Tumblr page knows silver and rides or rode at the barn where I got him from. She posted a page about her personal horses and info about them.

This is what was written about Silver...
"Silver Streak (Smoochie) is a 16.1h Irish Sport Horse who was imported from Ireland by my trainer. He is very sweet on the ground but tends to get very strong over fences and has a bit of a bucking problem. He was signed over to my family a few years ago when my trainer realized using him as a lesson horse probably wasn’t a good idea. We call him Smoochie because he loves to give his handlers kisses. "

He was sold to me as a quiet, confidence building school master... and now I know without a doubt that I was lied to!

If he was "signed over to her family" does that mean this person was the owner? I would print it out at the very least, with her ID, so that if need be you can go to small claims court. People like this make me angry.
