My girl's leg needs help :(

I have a 16 year old fox trotter/walker mix. I rode her in a parade and we did nothing but walk and at the end, she came up lame on her rear left leg. Nobody knows what happened to her, and 2 weeks later she's still limping a little. There's no swelling or visible marks, and she still wants to go go go but after she does, she still acts like it hurts. What should I do?

If my horse was lame for two weeks I would probably call the vet to do some diagnostics to determine what was causing the lameness.

I'm going to get her checked for pregnancy next week sometime....I can do it then. I'm just wondering if there was anything I could do to relieve stiffness in her leg

Is there any kind of icey hot for horses? A linament of some kind you could rub ob to provide some relief? Hope everything is alright!

Sore No More liniment has worked like a charm for me and I am a big believer. There is also vetrolin which many people swear by. If you believe in bute then giver a gram if it gets bad. And if it's her leg that's bad try cold hosing it for about ten minutes four or five times a day

There is no way to tell you how to relieve stiffness if you do not know what is causing the stiffness.

Well she wasn't limping nearly as much so I rode her around a little and she's almost all better she even chased a deer out of the pasture when I turned her back out. The hosing helped

Awesome! I'm glad to hear that she is doing better. Something that worked great for my mare was the sore no more poultice
