I've had Berdi for about 3 weeks now and have been riding her the last week or so. She had her feet trimmed over a week ago as they were really long when I got her. She has seemed fine at the trot and the lope and loves to be ridden.
But I saddled her up today and when I asked her to trot she seemed to be limping in her right hind leg. Yet she was perfectly fine at the walk, ears forward and very relaxed. I got off immediately and trotted her beside me and the same thing happened. I checked all her feet for stones, rubbed her legs down and put pressure on her feet and she didn't flinch at all.
She is 18 so I'm wondering if it might be a bit of arthritis? The foot that she was favoring was the one that had a bad crack and the bars had fallen on it. The farrier fixed her up good but I'm just wondering why she is limping now. She seems perfectly fine otherwise, so I am quite confused!
Any advice on what could be the problem would be appreciated!
