Is my horse experiencing discomfort or pain?

If your horse is showing any of the following signs, acupuncture may help:

  • Shortness of stride
  • Cold backed’: not wanting to be saddled and girthed; ‘dropping away’ on mounting
  • Bucking, e.g. in transition from trot to canter
  • Irritable, e.g. during grooming
  • Stiff through the neck, with reluctance to flex laterally
  • Disunited paces
  • Loss of condition
  • Change in behaviour
  • Lethargy
  • Lameness
