I'll be happy to help you with your horse. Could you give me a little more information on the problem

1. Is he lame or take bad steps?

2. Does he stretch his neck out when asked to canter or gallop?

3. Have you tried any medications (bute, banamine or any anti-inflammatory drug)?

Thanks. Looking forward to your reply.
