The only pic I have of her even close to standing square ;)

And this was taken beginning of oct 2012. He neck and body have fattened up a bit. The dip by her withers is not anywhere near as noticeable

Show us how she prefers to stand. As square as she wants. Don't make her square up perfectly.

I too feel there's something going on on her right side, besides the way the hind leg was moving, she prefers to turn her head to the right and from what I was seeing her right nostril was pulled higher. Have you checked her front hooves? Why I ask is because of the path of the nerves. Pain in the front travels up the leg then one route goes to the poll and the other towards the wither's area, along the back to the hind leg. Usually when lame on the front the horse will bob his head upward, yet downward with the hind. The bit is not why she's headbobbing as your reins were loose when you lunged her under tack.**A friend had been given a mare that was chronically "stiff" in the rt. Hind and continued for several years even with regular trimming. She found a good farrier who correctly balanced the old girl's hooves thro trimming only, and she was immediately sound. It was her front that was causing the issue yet she'd never been seen to limp on the front.

I have called the new chiropractor... He seems to think it is a combination of her poll and her sacrum. My horse was a Mexican horse and he said that right there tells it all. That they were severely brutal with her and she will have numerous problems. He will be working me into his schedule within the next week. He is apparently a super good chiropractor and thinks highly of my farrier. I'm so glad she my get better!!! ;) yay!!!!

I've been watching this thread with great interest. I also have a red rescued QH mare with a somewhat similar way of moving. Mine is only ever so slightly off in a walk, no sign of lame in trot or lope. In fact, she is setting down her foot a bit short and straight down, just like yours. She is also very rigid, has trouble bending her neck sideways. I bought her from the kind of folks yours came from. Maybe your new chiropractor may be on to something. Keep us updated
