It is his stifle that is sticking, not his hock David. His stifle actually locks completely for a few seconds at 6.30. It is caused by the Medial Patella Ligament being too loose and it does not free off the 'hook' on the stifle joint. He also has a stifle problem on the off hind as well - look from 21 minutes - it is sticking and also locks a bit too.
He needs Veterinary investigation as I know, to my cost, that lateral work whilst it is catching and sticking like that can permanently disable a horse.

This is hunting in Ireland not England. I lived and hunted there for 5 seasons, but my mare slid down the banks, walked across and climbed out on a loopy rein with me hanging onto the breastplate only because I am a wimp. I used to be laughed at because you are supposed to jump, straight across the ditches, NOT slide down and walk across, as many of the ditches have clay bottoms and it is easy to become stuck in them. It seemed safer to slide down to me and leave my horse to get on with it without interference, even if I did risk being stuck!
The horses are not "Fancy imported horses" hollycolumbia, they are bred in Ireland and cost next to nothing, in fact, I left my field gate open one night and had 3 such horses dumped in it in the morning. There is an overbreeding epidemic in Ireland and if something is worth nothing, it gets treated as such, unfortunately.
There are no 'Hunt Jumps' in Ireland, unlike the UK and the US. You have to ride across whatever is in the way and yes, horses get hurt on every hunt because they are simply viewed as tools by many of the field. The horse is injured, you 'bute' them up for the pain and hunt them again. I had to close my eyes to the cruelty there, but in the end, I had to leave.

Rewarding Your Horse

Story
Tagline
Semi retired now, I love horses, dogs and sewage treatment!
Introduction

I have been breaking, training and dealing in horses for over 40 years and am a qualified Saddle Fitter. 

I graduated as an Animal Nutritionist and was the Nutritionist for TS and D Thirsk Ltd animal feeds.  I went on to study Soil and Environmental Science and became Environmental Director of  Englishman Homes Ltd. in 1988.

I started Waste Tech Environmental Ltd in 1993, designing and supplying sewage treatment  plant systems for off-mains sites. WTE Ltd. designed and started to manufacture OASIS rainwater harvesting systems in 2009 as an addition to our unique products. Our sewage treatment plant servicing company, Sapphire Environmental Ltd. was added in 2010.
 
We are currently majoring on the development of non-electric sustainable sewage and wastewater treatment systems.
Bragging rights
I was the first animal nutritionist in the UK to remove all animal sourced protein from ruminant feeds. It didn't seem right to have to use flavourisers and aromatisers in order to get the cattle and sheep to eat the ration. Every other feed firm laughed at me, but when Mad Cow Disease broke out due to meat and bone meal in cattle feeds, they stopped laughing!

Delightful pub, just what you imagine when you think of a true English hostelry. Not a 'touristy' pub, but refreshingly full of locals. Great food, always reliably excellent. I have been going to this pub for 40 years and still look forward to the visit every Friday. It is, without doubt, the jewel in the crown of all the pubs I have been to in the East Riding - and I have been to a LOT!!!
