Horse has hind end problems - Horse Chiropractor Mass.

Doing Butt Tucks is a great way to test your horse for engagement and tucking under the hind end to move forward. If your horse does not respond to this they may have an issue in the pelvis that a chiropractor can help.

Butt tuck can also be used to strengthen the abdominal muscles which will greatly help with rounding up the back.
