Horses back pain can be difficult to pinpoint, but will create various degrees of discomfort.
Horses are very obliging and forgiving animals. They will try their hardest to please us, even when they are in considerable pain.
There are many reasons why a horses back is their main cause of pain. The most obvious cause is that the saddle is a poor fit. But there are less obvious causes, too.
Many people start training young horses before their bones have properly set. The racing world is probably where most of this happens, and sadly many ex-racehorses don’t get to enjoy a long life because their skeletal system gives out.
The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, famous for their Lipizzaner stallions, don’t start any work on their young colts until they have reached five years of age. They consider their bones are not properly set before this age. These stallions are often still working (and it’s hard work) in their 30’s. This fact speaks for itself.
There are some horse breeds who have a healthier bone structure than others. They are less likely to suffer with sore backs. The Irish bred horses are considered to be strong and hardy, probably because the soil, and so grazing, is so nutritious.
Horses who suffer from bad falls or injuries may never fully recover enough to take the weight of a rider for long periods. Often, horses back pain goes undiscovered or unnoticed, causing a great deal of suffering.
You can easily tell if a horses back is sore by the way their back will shrink away from even a light touch.
Taking all these factors into consideration, there are still occasions when your horse’s back is sore for no apparent reason.
