    Hi forum,

    My horse gets really bad rubs/bruising from the butt bar when we go on longish rides in the trailer. I currently have a vinyl cover on a padded butt bar, but am wondering if there is a better way to protect his hind quarters.

    Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

    I have a horse that does the same thing. My vet told me that a lot of horses sit on the butt bar to relieve the stress on their hocks. He recommended giving my horse 2g of bute before and after long trips and it helped!
