Shoes only in the back? That's unusual. May I ask why? Usually if horses are only partially shod it's the front that are shod.

It could be that , if he is only back shod and the ground was a bit rocky.

OP - I might be confusing you with someone else so I am sorry if I am... you were going to use Sunny as a barrel horse and he kept coming up lame and is unable to run barrels right? If that is the case I think it is great you are finding something else for you guys to do together.

Your doing great and are getting some good feed back- keep practicing and you two I am sure will really come together.

Thanks. He has never been lame. Just has a weaker hind end and his hocks had swelling. Never really lame though. And thanks:)

Sorry! I knew I didn't have it completely right.

Agree with some of the others....your horse is off, and he's not real sound in this vid. He has a definite UPWARD head bob at the trot, which usually means the unsoundness is in the back end.

He certainly is a quiet guy.....I like that.

Have you x-rayed his hocks? Unstable hocks with swelling would seem to indicate there is something going on inside. X-rays aren't that much money and you would know what the problem really is.

As far as WP, he doesn't really jog. He gives you a slowish trot but it's still a trot. Go have fun in the WP but try trail & horsemanship too. My bet is he'll be far better at those classes.

Good luck!

Not sure I entirely agree with this. To my understanding, when you are simply observing a horse at the trot, you cannot isolate front end or back end. You need to do flexion tests on a straight away and a circle (and possibly nerve blocks) to figure out precisely where it is at.

From the OP's video, I see the horse's head going UP when the front left and right hind are coming into contact with the ground, which would indicate the problem is in one of those two limbs.

While most problems end up being in the hind end, I don't see how you can say the problem is in the back end. Because the horse will have upward head movement for a front end problem too; it just depends which legs are striking the ground at the trot. Unless you are seeing something I am not.

Do you have a good lameness vet in your area? Honestly, that is where I would spend my money first. Your horse may still need a chiro adjustment (and it's never a bad idea to have them checked), but if you've only got so much money to spend, I'd spend it on the vet.

Honestly to answer that Beau.. The one that is soooo into lameness issues I USED to use as a vet/ farrier.. never offered anything to help with Sunnys Hocks feet nothing.. ALL he did was 'Take pictures' because he is so bow legged it thought it was funny.. ( I don't even think he is THAT bad.) SO needless to say nope. ANd I am getting the chiro out Wednesday and I've heard great things about him so I am going to see what he says and I will let you guys know:)
