Why is my horse stiff? Is this muscles or joints?
A healthy horse, without problems in the joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments, moves briskly, regularly, smoothly and with body use. If you let such a horse move freely or put it on the lunge, you will see wide strides of equal size, a beating rhythm in the movement and flexing muscles throughout the body. Even in the topline. Unfortunately, this is not always the reality and horses are sometimes stiff, short in movement, irregular or tighten their backs. The question is then: why is my horse stiff?
