Nobl Spring Shiloh

Shiloh- This very quite lil' lady has had quite the life. The history that I know of is she has has two babies when she was much younger. she was used as a english riding / jumper and pleasure horse. She then was bought by a sweet young lady and used for pleasure riding and also used for lessons for kids at a day camp for several years. She was donated to our riding program in Dec. 2015. She is a very very quite horse. She developed aninjury which prevents her from being ridden. The best the vets and the old owner can deduce is she may have had an injury to her chest earlier in life. I do know that shortly after arriving here she was double barreled by another mare while out in the pasture. She limped up fo a couple of days and we rested her and gave her bute. Within the week she was back in the program. About  month later we noticed she was getting girthy, We tried several diffrent girths none she was very happy with. We took it as a temperment phase and she stayed in classes. Very well behaved in classes even tho she was not happy about being in them. We break for the winter here. So no riding between mid Dec. through mid April. but the horses still get exercised. We noticed that now even when brushing the girth line she would squeek.  This became more and more prevelent. Also she would come up a bit lame after a little lunge work out. We called in the Veternarians they could not find any reason. The Chiro we brought in noticed tightness in her back end nothing the front end. She has been seen by Natural homopathic veteranarians, massage specialest we even have had raki done nothing helps but she is not worse either. She is a very sweet girl that I would love to see go to a home where she can be loved. She trailers well, stands well for farrier, not so well for dentist. She will need to be drugged for that. She is current on all shots, feet and teeth. She will need a goggins tho to be placed. She is excellent with adults and children. sweet sweet girl.
