That is probably why you found her not wanting to jump or do lead changes. It would definitely put a strain on her movement. I would be cautious about how much work you do with her right now... even though she's got them removed, she is probably still a bit tender from the surgery. Make sure you have vet approval before riding again... you wouldn't want to rip any stitches.
