    Yes, on several occasions. If you have no chance of buying the horse, it is best to distance yourself, at least emotionally if you work with the horse regularly. That's not to say that you don't...

    Also - the symptoms you describe ARE what I'd call classic SI symptoms. Many people just don't notice them or put 2 & 2 together!

    I should add - I have an old muscle tear in my own lower back which if not managed with regular massage turns into a gigantic area of spasm with flow-on effects - but when looked after does not...

    Hi all, just wondering if any of you have experiences with geldings suffering from tightness problems in the groin area that could be linked to scarring from the surgery. Horse in question was gelded...
