shoulder

  1. Horse Health
    My horse is a 16 year old mare and recently I have noticed that she has been having a bit of trouble. She does have a minor lameness in her left hind leg hip area from a recovered injury a couple years ago. Anyway, I'm not entirely sure if she does have a shoulder injury or which leg it is in...
  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So this is my new mare, the saddle I'm using tends to slide to her right a bit while riding. She gets a really dark spot on her right shoulder, and a dry spot on her left shoulder. Right down the center of her back there is a complete dry spot. :cry: My saddle is for high withers and she...

    My QH has a pocket behind each shoulder blade and I would like to have it fill in somehow. Any suggestions?

    My new STB ALWAYS has a sweaty spot on his neck/shoulder. Always in the same shape. No matter whether he is in the pasture chilling out or working. what could it be?

    Does anyone know where I can find a video / can explain with pics what Counterbending for Shoulder Control looks like with a horse? I get how to do it and it really makes them supple but is it for going in a circle or like side passing?
  11. Horse Health
    So basically, I have a horse 13 year old Thoroughbred who was in a hacking accident which caused his shoulder muscle to be partly detached from the inside of his shoulder. He is a simple happy hacker now and thoroughly enjoys it but does anybody know of any good joint supplements that are...

    Ill just start from the begining; Two weeks ago I took my horse out for a lesson, and she was a bit stiff in the front left but only just so. We figured it was just because she'd been in for a few days because of the weather, so I kept going and she worked out of it in about 5 min after...

    There are some really horse educated people here I see and thought you all may be able to give me some direction on this horse. 12 year appy gelding as pet for my horse. Was purchased for $1200 as a roping horse. (From owner: On 2nd ride while roping and turning a cow horse went down in the...

    Ok, so here is what happened. I believe that my horse pulled his upper left shoulder muscle. He pulled up limping a couple weeks ago. You could tell he was limping but it wasn't sever. It is most noticeable at an extended trot when the left leg extends forward. He doesn't extend the left leg as...

    For the past few days my horse has been really stiff from the shoulder but is NOT lame and it doesn't really seem to phase him that much. I left on vacation and he was fine when I came back a week later he seemed okay. So I hopped on him for a little light work and he was short striding (very...

    My gelding developed an odd swollen large lump right at the top of his scapula. This happened overnight after a non-riding day. This is not a bug bite and is not a saddle issue. The swelling is not showing signs of heat and is not changing in size. It is very firm... seems more like a deep...

    For a few months now, my horse has been off on his circles to the right (at a trot), but looks as if he's lame on the left front. There is no swelling anywhere , nor any "hot" areas. I've tried circles in both regular grass and in a deep sand round pen. He does seem to be a little more...
