    Why would you take on an ex-racer with known injuries or unsoundness??? Sacro problems are chronic by nature and costly to treat, and many horses are not sound enough to be ridden long term. *#)

    Sacro-Iliac issues

    Causes, clinical signs and treatment response differs greatly between individual animals. It's a common area of injury and strain which isn't necessarily exclusive to exracers and can be done in the paddock. I've pm'd you who I use on my horses. :)
