The Chiro Came Out!

I haven't ridden Sunny yet, since I'm sick, plus he needs to rest for a few days, but the chiro came out.
What's your opinion on them? Do they work? I haven't never really had experiences with them on the horses I've ridden. But the chiro was very nice.
Sunny's rib was digging into him (which felt like a knife stabbing him) preventing him from bending and he was starting to have major buck "fits".
Bully (another horse I ride sometimes) had pelvis problems, which lead to some trippiing.
Now the two boys are all happy - Sunny got his teeth done, the chryo and his feet done.
Bully, too, got the same treatment as Sunny.

I had a chiro out for some of the horses at the dude ranch, and I saw about a 50% improvement rate. For a couple of the horses, it changed them completely, for others it didn't help at all. I do think they can help, but it depends on the horse... :) I really hope it helped Sunny!

Thank you everyone.
I really hope it improves him, and his buddy, Bully (I'm working with him).
I'd be way to scared to use the chiro on myself!

I think they are GREAT!!! Ok, I am biased, I am one. It is wonderful to see the results immediately, although some horses, like people respond differently and take longer to help. I love my job, it beats being in an office all day.
