Ringbone is believed to be related to conformational issues. Sure, harsh training methods, bad shoeing, or starting her too young could have brought it on more aggressively, but if she's conformationally predisposed to it, it may have just been a matter of time.
Corrective shoeing, joint injections, and NSAIDs may help prevent it from becoming worse. Your vet and farrier are the ones to talk with about options on how to best treat it.
Good luck. She's a lovely horse.
