Is anyone good at horse lameness?

Hi, I asked a question a while ago about the lame mare Pistachio. I was told to keep her on pasture rest and then ride again (not by HGS). I let her rest for about two weeks and then rode her again.

I got a bunch of video's, they're all short but there's quite a few.

Walking: Trotting #1: Trotting #2: Trotting #3: Trotting #4: Trotting #5:
Sorry the video's suck, my grandma sucks are working the camera. \:

After the ride I checked her back ankles, they're both swollen. The hind right is worse than the hind left. I think she looks worse than the first ride. Here's the video if it will load this time and you want to compare...
So, what do you think?

BTW, I'm calling a vet, I just want to get other people's opinions because I'm too impateint to wait for my vet. D:

Really, just wait for your vet. We aren't going to be able to tell why she is lame from videos.

I wouldn't ride her while she is lame.

I was told to give her a break, then ride again and see if she goes lame again. That's what I did.

If you don't have any ideas, then you can just skip over this question. I am not trying to be rude, but I asked because maybe someone had a smiliar issue and they can brainstorm what it might be.
