Well my beautiful young Trosco and I have been having severe difficulties lately! I wouldn't say he's necessarily a problem horse but we are having problems! (WE) Not necessarily him!! I've had him since April and he is just lovely. He's a 10yo thoroughbred with ... Issues. Basically, our partnership is coming along well and he is just brimming with talent. And I entirely accept that a lot of our issues are me. And that I do tend to have a fair bit of bad luck haha. It all started at Narrogin this year when he was VERY anxious going into xc. Reefing, doing small rears, trying to take off in the warm up. Got out of the box and he was perfect and we went clear. Then he went lame in all 4 legs (protein/concussive laminitis? We can't figure it out and vets have looked at him) so he had time off. Then we went to Fairbridge and he was a nutter going into sj and I retired. Didn't attempt xc. Then he went lame in one front leg turned out to be an abscess. Then we went to Murray and he reared big time in warm up and then bolted on xc and did the most massive jump over no 3 that you have ever seen so I retired. Then we went to Serpentine and he was better in warm up but still a bit iffy then we got out there and everything was going lovely until jump 13 which was a drop, over a coffin then over a jump and he just freaked out over the coffin. Then we jumped a clear sj. Have had him fully vet checked (again) to see if anythings wrong - Nothing is. Had bowen done, teeth done, changed his diet slowly etc. And nothings working. So my new theory is that he's freaking out because we're moving to Geelong for a year so we had a heart to heart about it and I told him there's nothing to worry about but that's really not making a change. So good old stockies, what're your theories!!
