I have recently been given a 13yr old maiden mare. Her previous owner gave up on riding her as she had recurring back problems. I believe the back problems were saddle/poor rider related however as is the case with sore backs it is almost impossible to know why. The mare I feel would produce lovely foals so I would dearly love to try. What problems can I expect with
1. The stallion naturally covering her?
2. Her carrying the foal full term with the extra weight?

I have had the mare aprox 1 month and rest has not helped her sore back as yet. Suggestions as to anything else I can try?

You might consider having either a chiropractor or a massage therapist out to work on her, they can really do wonders.

I agree with Laurie. You'd be amazed at the difference a chiropractor can make to horses that don't even show obvious signs of pain.

We cover a heap of maidens each year, and have learned that if her back hurts, she generally won't let the stallion mount, or is likely to kick or go down while he's up there.
We have a brilliant teaser that jumps on all our maidens before they are covered by the main guy, and if we run into a problem there, we call the chiropractor. There have only been 2 mares in my 7 years that this hasn't fixed. We're still trying to figure one of them out!

You should also ask your chiro whether the mare will have lasting problems afterwards, this will determine whether she'll carry a foal happily.
