How Do I Know If My horse's Hocks Are Painful?

Most commonly owners report that they are more fluid one direction or another. We also see a reluctance to jump straight or drift to one side of a jump. Barrel horses often start ducking barrels, veering wide or losing competitive times.

Often horses with hock pain will have shorter strides and develop what is referred to as a stabbing gait. All breeds and disciplines of horses can experience these problems though the way they manifest is dependent on use. It’s typically a feeling the owner’s sense that their horse is simply not giving them 100%.
