RE: [RC] Head dipping - Karen Standefer

Could be anything.  I had one that did this for the longest time and it turns out he had OCD in his right rear stifle.  My guess is that he was relieving back tension from carrying himself in an unbalanced fashion due to the painful stifle.  He compensated really well for it for a long time (2 years that I had him).  I knew something wasn’t quite right because he was unbalancing that hoof ever so slightly and we never could get it to stay completely balanced.  Finally after 2 years of not feeling comfortable putting him on a 50 mile ride, I had a really thorough vet exam done.
