Last week a chiropractor came out to adjust Cupid.  She gave him a thorough examination before starting the work, taking a lot of time to analyze his movement.  Cupid was very well-behaved, but bucked when asked to canter on the lunge because it hurt him.  The chiropractor adjusted his problem areas, primarily his neck and pelvis.  She said that, despite the current problem, Cupid is actually in quite good shape considering his race record.  She also complemented his sweet temperament.  As long as he is not lame I can start lunging and riding him at the walk and trot, no cantering for a while.  Gradually we will add hills and cavaletti to strengthen him.  So, I am cautiously optimistic and looking forward to riding Cupid again!
