Dr. Meddleton is certified through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association and has been performing chiropractic adjustments on horses since 1994. Back problems are common in the horse for obvious reasons. You can be more proactive than "bute & rest".
Is Your Horse Going As Well As He Could Be?
Athletic horses, like human athletes, put a lot of stress and strains on their bodies and will be more likely to have spinal misalignments. You need your horse to give his best performance, whether he does dressage, hunter/jumper, barrel racing, eventing, racing or is a working horse. Chiropractic adjustments can help assure your horse is performing at an optimal biomechanical advantage, and in comfort. I've seen barrel racers cut their time after each adjustment.

Chiropractic Science – Why it Works!
Chiropractic science focuses on the alignment of the spine (vertebrae)
Nerves that supply every organ in the body, every muscle, and every tissue, originate from the spinal cord and must pass between vertebrae
Alignment of the spine is essential for the proper functioning of the entire body
A misalignment (or subluxation) between two vertebrae can cause irritation to the surrounding tissues.
The nerves then must pass through these inflamed tissues which can disrupt their signals.
Chiropractic adjustments work to realign vertebrae, thus eliminating the underlying cause of a problem.
The goal of Chiropractic care is not to merely eliminate disease, but to facilitate optimal physical and mental well-being
