Why are you riding this horse period is what I want to know?

There is something wrong but you don't seem to care enough to consider you are hurting your horse?

Stay off of it until you find out what is going on.

And pastures can change from year to year, month to month and day to day in what is growing, depending on what weather is doing too, drought, too much rain, or new plants coming in and coming up.

But main thing is STAY OFF HORSE. And get a vet out. You should be ashamed of yourself for riding this horse.

This horse is not in pain and he is not suffering from anything.
I have pressed on his hooves and all down his legs - squeezing and pressing and massaging his legs and his whole body. He did not show any new signs that would indicate pain or hurting.
I know I am not hurting him. I watch all his movements, ears, eyes, any head raising, etc.
I warmed him up on the ground first - trotting and loping him on the ground.
WHen he loped he didn't show any pain or hurting, his legs were only stiff.
We have called a vet and she said that from we described from everything that it is most likely just him showing his age and we shouldn't worry about it.

I am very careful with my horses. If I see one tiny little meaningless scratch, I will get worried and put something on it because I love them so much and I don't want anything to happen to my boys.
My horses mean the world to me - I don't know what I would do if they left or if they got seriously injured.

I understand your concern as well, and thank you for that. But when I first saw Golley's weight loss and stiffness - I was very worried and scared. I have known these horses since I can remember and if anything happened to them, well, there are just no words to describe it. No horse could replace any horse I ever had through my lifetime - and I have gone through a lot of horses. We have sold our close horses and some of our even better horses have passed on. One of our horses died from cancer a few years ago - she was on of the best and most beautiful horses we ever had.

Don't worry, Palomine. I love my horses too much to even do the slightest thing if anything was hurting or even look like it might.

I'm with Palomine. Your horse IS in pain and you rode him anyways...

He was showing lameness and stiffness at a trot and more so at a canter... That does not mean he is fine. It means he is hurting somewhere and needs to be evaluated by an actual vet.

Stiffness at any gait isnt a sound horse might not be dead lame but its still lame. A stiff horse is a hurting horse no matter how you look at it.

You have it backwards.

Laminitis is the inflammation of the lamina (Lamin means lamina and itis means inflammation)

Founder is when the coffin bone moves or rotates.

You can have laminitis without founder, but not the other way around. Founder is a progression of laminitis. Sinking founder is what it's called when the coffin bone rotates and punches through the bottom of the foot.
