Mystery lameness! Any ideas?
So for the past 6 weeks my horse has been lame. She's been checked by the vet 3 times and no one can seem to figure out what is wrong so I would like to know what you guys think of just a description.
Background info: She is 16.2hh 12 years old and her only conformation fault is her right front hoof is clubbed.
So 7 weeks ago I took my horse to a week long hunter/jumper show. She is a big jumper mare, she's jumped 3'6"-3'9" her whole life and never had a problem. I took her to the show and only did up to 2'9". She did great, never took a wrong step, and was 100% sound when we got home. Once home I gave her a day off and then the next day when I went out to see her, I found out she could barely walk. According to the guys that work at my barn, they turned her out and she was psychotic in turnout and could barely walk back to her stall. She was lame on her right front. That's when it all started. And nothing has changed in the last 6 weeks. There's no swelling or heat anywhere. Hoof tested her and she's fine. The weirdest part is she trots sound on hard ground like concrete but is lame on soft ground like in arenas.
So I would like to know what your opinions are!
