Hey Everyone,

I recently received a rescue horse that had a coffin bone injury 2-3 years ago. The bone is fully fused and does not seem to cause him any pain whatsoever. I had a chiropractor come that confirmed his hip right hip was about three inches forward and about two inches dropped and his pelvis was fully rotated. She helped a lot and since then he has been getting used to his new body. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to help this horse regain full balance and be able to comfortable bend and do dressage?

Thank you for your advice!

Hi, boy, that's quite a bit of rotation thru his pelvis! But IME a good Chiro can do wonders. But without knowing details about the horse, his age, what 'injury' to P3 & what is fused, etc, you're asking 'how long's a piece of string'. Depends IF he'll make a good dressage prospect. Did you ask the Chiro, as they've actually seen the horse?
