Horses with a burr under their saddle

Girthiness is commonly associated with the consequences of tightening the girth too quickly when the saddle is first put on. But although there has been so much progress in the field of saddle making during the last decades and the awareness of the importance of saddle fitting and careful girthing has positively changed, many of our modern riding horses across all breeds are girthy. On reflection, this does not come as a surprise. What if the reason for the girthiness of a large part of the horses concerned were to be found in the low back position?

With some horses we encounter difficulties which we can’t overcome without assistance. This is the time when it is necessary to consult an expert.

A chiropractor can now solve the remaining problem; and this solving has an effect on the whole system of the horse. Subsequently it is absolutely necessary to include the now relieved area into the straightening training and to therewith stabilize what has been achieved. It is possible that a horse does not know how to cope with this new situation or is not loose enough to carry the change in its systems yet. This can also be observed in the musculature of the eye.

An important factor of the whole training is the active participation of the horse in the process of straightening and loosening of tensions/muscular imbalances. This substantially distinguishes the lunging work from the sole treatment by a therapist without the necessary accompanying exercising. The lunging work represents a superior element which is there to remind the horse of the exercising movement pattern, especially after therapeutic treatment.
