Re: [RC] Horse landing unevenly - Chris Paus

I would suggest a certified veterinary chiropractor.

If your mare is trimmed correctly (balanced) and is
still landing unevenly,
then I would involve the vet.  Landing on one side
or the other usually
indicates there is pain somewhere.  That, coupled
with your description of
her movement would have me suspicious of hock or
stifle problems.  
Doing any correcting trimming/shoeing without
understanding what is causing
the pain could exacerbate the issue.

Hello all!  The mare I am currently riding lands
unevenly on her right hind.
As she walks, she slightly swings her right hind out
and then back in,
landing on the outside of her hoof first.  How do we
get this fixed?  I have
discussed this with my farrier and he has a
suggestion but I would like to
read what all of your suggestions may be.  Thanks!
