    She does look a it slow with that leg... I don't know if it is just me but it looks like she has a slight head bob (very slight) when that right leg touches the ground...maybe she got a little kick in it from your boy? Or maybe it is just horsey cramps... just have to wait and see

    She doesn't look off to me, just hollow/stiff. I have a horse that was stiff and hollow when trotting on the lunge and I got a cavesson, it has worked wonders. A cavesson helps let them reach out and down to stretch their back and upper neck muscles. Also you may want to use a lunge whip because she isn't listening to your clucks, getting her move forward would help to judge her movement with clarity.

    Haha I was using a lounge whip, I just didn't want to move too much to get after her and bounce the camera all over, although I was already doing an aweful job keeping it steady! She normally isn't so lazy, she was just being a complete witch that day!
    She seems a lot better, she's back to galloping in with the gelding, so who knows what she did. I'll have to get her out later on the lounge so I can get a better look at her.

    I disagree that she is lame in the hind, her hocks are moving equally in both the videos. It is probably just her conformation, age, etc...
    In the walk video it is clearly seen that she is raising her head when the right fore is striking the ground. You can't see it in the trot video because she is jogging, and not trotting. Get her trotting fast enough and it would appear.
    Call your vet and in the mean time keep her on stall rest. Cold hose the right front and if you have access to it give her half a gram of bute twice a day.

    Good Luck!

    Just lounged her, she's moving completely fine. I have no clue what was making her so stiff, she probably just did something silly. She was moving out fine, doing a huge trot and really getting under herself. I'm glad it was nothing serious, I'm just going to let her take it easy a few more days.

    Horses can have stiff/sore days just like we can!
