Just had a vet look at my Standardbred and he said that what I had been thinking was a sacroiliac issue, is a back injury and might have been caused by flipping backwards in the cart. He also said that my horse would be capable of very limited work under saddle. I don’t care about that. Just want him to have a happy life. I bought him with the back issue from a Standardbred re-homing centre. Their back guy thought that the horse would be able to go trail riding. He has spent nearly two years doing nothing. He spent time living with my retired pony for about eighteen (and looked after by someone else) and I got my hands on him a few months ago. Have been working on his manners and with Spring approaching thought that I would get his back issue looked into. Now that I realise that it isn’t a sacroiliac issue, i don’t know what to think.
