I am at the end of my rope with what to do with our medium pony. We have owned her a year and she has moved the same way the entire year we have owned her. I viewed videos of her ridden prior to us owning her and she looked the exact same then..so this is not new. But my gut just says something isn't right. We have had 3 vets plus a chiro examine her and still no answer. -drags both hind toes equally at the walk, in her pasture, under saddle on grass and in arena, does NOT drag them when ridden or hand walked on pavement (lazy or....) -tracks up equally at the walk and trot -she twist her hind feet when she walks in deep sand, toes go inward hocks go outward with each step. does it on both hinds. -at the trot her hind legs cross underneath her midline, its very obvious. if viewed from the back as she trots away in a straight line they both swing in a lot. still tracks up nicely and lands flat (not toe first) and does not drag. -her trot is "fancy" we have been told, but to me it looks odd and nqr. maybe because I am used to seeing school/lesson horses who plod along but ours really bends the hocks high (is not stringhalt) it is not that long sweeping motion in the hind, but an up/down motion, however she doesn't short stride at all. its very floaty. -at the trot she sways her head side to side, in rhythm with the trot. its very subtle but its there (this could be the riders hand I guess) -she goes into trot and canter willingly. -she really hate going left. even at the walk or trot, doesn't matter as soon as you turn to track left she is crooked, nose to the rail and ears back. sometimes (happening more often now) she will just stop and refuse to move. the more you ask for forward motion she will shake her head and start walking backwards. if you turn to track right she will carry on like nothing happened. -she has started to duck out of jumps, canter along nicely to them then dart to the left or right to avoid the jump. (she is green to jumping so this may not be cause for alarm) this also happens more tracking left -hard time with left lead. she can get it but much harder for her, and if she jumps on left lead she 80% will land right lead but she will do the simple change back to left -the canter to walk or canter to halt transition is quick and abrupt. she will 50% of the time seem to almost buckle or fall out in the hind end. if we canter-trot-walk she doesn't do this. -her canter is great as well, no bunny hop at all. -she has qh bloodlines (dad is vested pine) and she is built VERY downhill with the tiniest feet, she is barefoot and she does get quarter flares on the hinds (probably from the twisting) two vets have said its her hocks. and one injected them about 4 weeks ago. she moves exactly the same and in fact her attitude about going left has gotten worse since the injections. I just cant keep dealing with the stopping and backing up, if really pushed to move in that direction she will buck! trainer wants her to push through and thinks its behavioral but I just don't know. I feel like if she didn't want to work she would do it both ways equally. neither vet has offered to xray even after my request because they both think hocks are the problem. but injections did nothing. chiro did a neuro exam and she passed all except the tight circle test she didn't cross over behind as well as she would have liked. of course I fear EPM but she doesn't seem to fit the mold. also she is very very very sensitive to water on her back, for instance when we try to hose her down after a ride or just for a bath she ducks her back down when the water touches it (maybe that is nothing but thought I'd mention it) ok so if you made it this far...any thoughts or ideas? hocks, stifles, si, neuro?
