I have a 3 yr old National show horse and he has started limping a little. He was a little ouchy on the gravel in my pasture and the frozen ground that was all messed up, but I took him in the other side of the pasture that was soft and didnt have a lot of ruts in it and he quit even at a trot he was fine, then I worked with him a little and put the saddle on and my mom and I walked him to her friend's house to use the round pen, he was fine until we got about halfway down the drive and then he started limping a little not every step but he still was limping some, so we got him in the round pen and in certain areas he would limp at the trot we stopped him and checked his hooves and there was a few rocks in them and then we made him trot agian and he still limped a little, the round pen was prety rocky in some areas and it wasnt completley level. My mom and I think he is just stone bruised because he just had his shoes pulled for the winter and he is used to soft footing. I just wanted to see what you pple think.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated
