Can someone help me pinpoint my horse's lameness?

Please ignore my crappy riding. I didn't notice she was lame when I was riding her. \:
I watched the video and she looked kind of weird to me, but I really can't tell and I see fake lameness all the time. Then someone on here pointed out she was off. I haven't got an agreement on where she's lame at and I was wondering if you can help me tell what leg she was lame on? 'Cause I really can't tell. \:


Thanks everybody! :)

Left hind. Looks to be stifle or hip. Not horrible, head bobbing lame, but definitely lame. But please don't beat yourself up about not seeing or feeling it, this type of lameness is subtle.

You're not doing her any favors by riding in that small of an area; tight turns and circles will make it more pronounced.

Agree, and "fake lameness" No such thing. Horses cannot "fake" it. If they are lame, there is something bothering them.

Fake lameness = I think they're lame, being paranoid, and have them checked out and it turns out they're just fine. :L

Two,

What that most likely means is that they genuinely took a couple of bad steps, for whatever reason, and you couldn't reproduce it when the vet was there.

Believe, all horsepeople know about the lameness that spontaneously heals when the vet's truck pulls up in the driveway.
