I am totally frustrated by his behavior and at a complete loss, looking for some additional ideas…
I have a 16.3 OTTB, who has sat in a field for the last 3 years. I had him vetted and took him home. He is in 12 hrs and out 12 hrs. Stall is very comfortable, 14 x 14 windows can see other horses, has a jolly ball and a salt block.
He is fed TC Senior, Banks Mill Low Starch, Ultrabloom, 1/2 scoop of bp, soaked, 2x a day. Basically free choice O/A (he runs out during the night)
He was completely upstarted, everything was going well. WTC and ground poles. He is extremely lazy in the trot and takes alot of leg. If I canter first then I can get quality trot work after that. Then suddenly he started bucking to the right when I put my outside leg on him (even in trot circles). We suspected ulcers I treated for 7 days with UG then 28 days with pop rocks, think i will continue to treat for 60 days. After about 14 days he was back to normal happily moving along still SLOW as molasses and still stiff to the left. I had the chrio out. Then all hell broke loose he was back to his bucking self. He has front shoes, low heels in the back, but we are getting there.
I have called the vet, she ran blood work all clear. Called the chiro he said he was out but nothing that would take 2 weeks to recover from. Called a saddle fitter, fitted him with a new county innovation. Dentist comes Thursday. What would you guys do next?
