Back pain is not the preserve of humans. Horses can also suffer from low back pain (Horse Sore Back). And especially mounted horses.
Indeed, up to 85% of them suffer from back pain!
Often due to poor quality or unsuitable equipment, poor fitting or a rider used to riding too long or in the wrong position, back pain in horses should not be taken lightly. And although the signs can sometimes be subtle, they do exist. Here’s how to recognize them!
Good to know: in order to avoid Horse Sore Back and other chronic back pain, all horses, regardless of their age and intensity of work, must be examined by an osteopath at least once a year.
Likewise, their teeth should be checked every year because they can also cause Horse Sore Back!
