    Hi.

    Watching your video, your horse is showing clear signs of discomfort, especially when asked to lead on his off fore, particularly in canter.

    It could be back or shoulder related, but you really need to consult a reputable physiotherapist, not a massage therapist.

    I certainly would not ride him until the cause of his pain is established and particularly not in circles.

    I would not, under any circumstances, keep him in. Turn him out. Also, it wouldn't hurt for him to lose some weight.

    Have you had your saddle checked for fit? It could be pinching.

    Yeah watching back on videos, I noticed he didn't like to turn left. I thought they done the same thing..? Not going to be ridden at all, only gentle walks 4 days a week I was told. Saddle has been checked. Will work on his weight when back in work
