Thanks so far to the list, I'm getting some great replies. Including
massaging his back.

Should I massage his back regardless that he is "shrinking" away from my

He flexes easily, bends his head around to his hip and to the ground. I
lunge him nice and warm with side reins and he has no problem with it.
He's always been stiff to one side but that is since the day I met him
and something we always work on.

Does a chiro vet massage the horse first to determine if an adjustment
is needed?

Sorry if questions are so naive, just never had to worry about this
