A bit worried about the way my pony is moving behind

I have taken on a lovely loan pony for my daughter my yard owner was lunging today and sent me a message that she is a bit worried about the movement behind.

She has advised I get the vet to have a look she has checked for any obvious signs.

I have only had her a week and half and I am liable for all vet fees, I have no idea how serious this could be it's our first loan pony.

Any ideas? I am worried about it.

Since this doesn't sound like the horse is 3-legged lame, but rather moving a little funny, I'd first call the owner to find out if there's any known issue that could cause the horse to look off. Assuming there isn't anything known, you should have a vet out to examine the pony.

It's hard to say what it might be or what it might end up costing you without seeing it. Does you contract give you an out if the horse ends up being unrideable for any length of time?

Definitely need more details to be able to help. Is it possible to get video?

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
