I bought a horse that was four years old and came with white spots. My assumption was poor fitting saddle. My assumptions were based on seeing the white spots and previous owner told me that she wore an extra wide saddle and found that what really fits her is a med. wide.
When I first got her, she would buck when I asked her to canter. That could have been because she was only four and still unbalanced or it could be because she expected pain, not sure. At eleven, she still has the white spots but has never had any issues from it. I make sure that what I put on her fits her and she will let me know really quick if it doesn't. Some horses don't, they will just grin and bare it until they no longer can.
There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.
