I am an Industrial Engineering and evaluate ergo stressors at one of the big 3 automotive company throughout North America. We may have “opinions” on this topic but I tend to agree with your vet that this “position” could be causing stress on the horse’s joints especially holding that position for awhile (minutes/seconds?) with additional weight on his back (?lbs) and frequency. Your best bet is not to base your decision on opinions but rather arm yourself with hard core facts (the x-ray). If it was my horse, I would stop the bow trick until I got medical data. If an x-ray is not within your budget, you may want to stop that specific trick for a while and see if the reaction is the same. I hope this helps
