Arrow Horse went lame HELP!

Hello. So I just rented this barn back in august to start a training prograhm. Everything is going well. The only problem I have is that the arena is rock hard and it has rocks in it. It is sand and dirt mix. The arena is being dug up next week. Well I was working a clients horse (Sending excerise) and the next day the horses left shoulder went lame. I am guessing it was bruised from my poor footing. Any suggestions? The owner and I are worried that it might be something more. If you touch her shoulder muscle she pionts her nose at the area. It is not hot. The farrier had also forgot to clip a piece of her hoof near her frog. I also thought that that didnt help either.

No not yet. Today is only the 2nd day of being sore.

The farrier forgot?? The horse is most likely off balance, which will throw everything out and cause soreness.

Thats what im thinking. Its her left front, wich if you pick her hoof up her right hoof bar is WAY off from the left hoof bar. Farrier needs come fix it. Put the horse on rest till fixed.

Our Oldest has been lame twice, once from a rock (small) lodged in the frog, second was per the Vet a strain upper leg. He had been bitten by a horse fly during a trail ride, and took off bucking. Vet had us apply heat, and medication (NSAIDs). The colt was lame once due to an absess, which was in the process of draining. We always call the Farrier, then Vet if one of ours is lame. Hope that helps.
