    He isn't so lame that he is unable to be ridden. His issue only really pops up in rigorous dressage work. I think he could give someone many years of happiness as a trail/pleasure horse so I don't...

    My first thought when I read your description of her preference to canter and reluctance to move forward in the trot....stifle pain.

    This is exactly what I saw in my haffie gelding when his stifle...

    My haflinger was doing this exact thing when his saddle was pinching him. For a long time I assumed it was behavioral because I was riding him in an xXXW duett. It progressed to him bucking me...

    My horses are kept at home and I only have a grass area for riding. After the farrier came the last 2 times they have been trimmed, they slip and slide all over the grass (wet or dry). This time,...
