Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Not saying this is your horse but some horses are just not sliders because of the way they are built -or- are sore in the hocks, stifle,back or sacrum. Are you working with a trainer? Have you had a vet look at your horse? If she was sliding better last year it sounds like it may be time to ask a vet. Either way it sounds like you could use a professional evaluation. Good luck.
