A horse has periodic lameness in his hind right at the lope for only a couple of strides every 30 minutes. After those couple of strides he "works" out of it and is no longer lame for another 30 minutes. It happens in both leads and its always the hind right. Only happens with a rider, no evidence while lunging.
No swelling, heat, tenderness, or favoring (other than those few strides)...
The horse is 4.
What seems to be the cause?
