    Hello, everyone, I noticed that my horse when I ask her to move her hindquarters, either back ups, goes forward, or flicks her tail and sort of stiffly raises her hind leg. I noticed that under saddle first, because she suddenly stopped turning when I ask her to. At first, I thought it was just...

    Hi everyone! Back in early June my horse had an abscess in his front left hoof. The vet was able to dig a hole deep enough in his hoof to help release the pus. His hoof is almost fully grown back and I've been keeping the opening clear. Last weekend we went trail riding and he seemed fine and...

    Hi guys! I have a question about my 18 yr old quarter horse that has recently developed some stiffness in his right shoulder. However, he only exhibits this stiffness in the indoor arena.

    I bought my 4 yr old QH a year ago and last winter he had been stiff on and off. Last winter his back hawks were hot off and on. I had them exray'd and the vet said it could just be growing pains. In the spring he went to training, the trainer didn't think he was stiff. I rode him all summer...

    My appy gelding has a lot of muscle tightness and a few knots in his neck. I had a massage therapist come out back in November(she said he was the tightest horse she ever worked on) but he is very skiddish with new people(and even not so new people) and she wasn't able to work on him very well...

    My horse is really stiff going right. He makes a fuss when i ask him to bend around the corner and ends up moving with almost straight legs. He is fine going left. Are there any exercises i can do with him to get him to bend more and be more comfortable?
