Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
For some reason, your trainer saying she could be stiff after only being used 3 times, just doesn't seem right to me. If she has continual limping like that, I wouldn't hesitate to take some action immediately, so as to catch any serious underlying problem.....
By the title of your post, it seems to me that you instinctively think it's a hoof problem. I would call the farrier asap, and if you don't have one yet, ask around for reference to the best. It's a good start, anyway, and by process of elimination you can go from there. Good luck, and I hope she'll feel better soon! :)
