Lame in right rear, but cannt pinpoint where.Videos!

So Molly rose, the lesson horse is lame again (previous lameness issues in this thread Lesson horse lame off and on for past 4 weeks) This time I had my instructor get on so I could take a video. I rode her on tuesday and she was off, but my instructor thought that she was just stiff because they had been in for 2 days/nights. After I rode her on tuesday she got her front shoes put on(she was bare for winter) and in her left hind hoof the farrier parred out where she blew an abscess in january. Val thought maybe it was her hoof so we put on my horses easy boots which didn't make a difference one way or the other. I'm thinking the issue is her right rear stifle. She is on msm, but no other supplements.

She isn't as lame going this way...

Upward fixation of the patella(/locking stifles)? I don't have much expierience with this, but maybe it could be that?

Call the vet yet?

No the barn owner is buting her and giving her off to see if it improves. If she were mine I would call the vet but she not so its not my call.

I cannot see lameness going left. If you'd posted that video and not said she was lame, I would not have thought it. Going right, I do see "offness". Both hocks seem to be flexing reasonably. Her feet?

Could be her back/hips causing her to be hitchy.

I wish she would have the vet look at her because this has been on and off lame for way too long. She had the vet run a lyme test but that was negative and shortly after she was sound again.

It may not be that noticeable in the video, but you can sure feel it. From the second I started even walking her around I could feel something wasn't right and she just progressively got worse as we rode.

She thought it may be her feet, which is why we put my horses easy boots on her, but it didn't change anything. I would expect to see a light improvement if it was her back feet. Her fronts are shod, poorly. I wouldn't doubt it if she has some rotation in her fronts from the look of her feet or maybe navicular

When she first was lame over winter I really felt like it was in her hips, but I'm terrible at telling this stuff.

I need to win the lottery so I can buy Molly rose and get her all fixed up She is really an awesome horse. I hate when she is lame because I can't stand any of the other lesson horses and my horse is a hormonal lunatic and I'm going to do a lot more ground work before I get on her again since all we do is fight when I ride her lately.

I see lameness going to the right. A mild stifle lameness. That would explain the on again, off again. She would definitely exagerate the lameness in stifle if she was stalled for two days then brought back to work. She should have a vet check and make some recemmendations. It is hard on her to have days off in a stall and then be brought out and worked for lessons etc. I would refrain from riding until a vet has checked her over. Im surprised the vet didnt ask to see her move out and at least check her. :)
You can do a simple test yourself (or your coach) by cupping your hand over the inside muscle of her stifle and getting someone to walk her off. If her stifle is the problem you will feel a gritty kinda movement of the muscles instead of a smooth fluid feeling movement. Even if you don't feel anything in the stifle (in case you don't get the right spot) I would have her checked.
Best of luck.
