@Rye8281 - Congrats on your beautiful horse!

I also live in NH, and if you consider looking into a veterinary chiropractor, I'd recommend Dr. Jackie DeDeo, who works throughout the southern part of the state. This is her website: Equine & Canine Wellness - Holistic Veterinary Services She's been helping my horses (and dog) for years and I would be happy to tell you more over private message. I will say she can be a little difficult to work with as far as scheduling (NEVER plan for her to be on time!) but the animals really like her and owners are happy too- once she gets there.

Off topic, but I just wanted to say that, @egrogan , I love your new profile pic!

Hold on to what makes you happy! If it tries to buck you off, just hold on even tighter!

Ditto an equine chiro to look at her:)

I have a horse with an old fractured sacrum injury that causes him problems anytime his 22 yr old self gets to bucking up too much in the pasture. His equine chiro keeps him in alignment.

The chiro is a holistic vet who also does acupuncture and is a student of Chinese medicine, which has also come in handy a few times:)

Ditto on the hooves --- I wasn't sure if the flares were the camera playing tricks or they really are flared quite a bit:). Otherwise, Tillie looks perfect:)
Thank you :) chiro sounds great I will be calling one tomorrow! Great info from everyone, love this site

I'm all the way out in the southwestern part of the state, right on the Connecticut River. Last town in NH before VT! How about you? I'm guessing the beach by your user name

Welcome to the forum and Tillie looks like a very sweet, solid girl!

She looks a little sickle-hocked in back, but that could be the way she is standing. For a pleasure horse, she looks strong and put together well. Her trot will likely not be the nicest thing to sit due to her shoulder, and as others have pointed out her back looks a little long/weak.

Thankfully that's all something that can be mitigated with proper exercise, getting her to engage her hind end and use her abdominal muscles :) If you plan to trail ride with her, you could do work on hills and use other natural obstacles to keep things fun and interesting for you and her.

Again, welcome to the forum and hope to see a lot more of your girl! :)
