Ringbone

I have a ten year old Arabian mare who goes lame quite often. I was working with her and a trainer the other day who said that it looks to him like she has ringbone. She is very tenderfooted and her front legs crack when she walks. She had a very bad case of thrush before I got her and even lost the frogs on her feet.
I'm not sure how to tell if it is ringbone or what else it could be. Does anyone know?

Get the vet to do an xray.

The only way to know for sure is to have x rays done. If it is ring bone they will diagnose upper or lower and work out a treatment plan. A good friend of mine had a gelding with upper ring bone at 12yo and they treated him with hyaloronic acid injections.

If someone who knows what they're on about says it 'looks' like ringbone, then it's non-articular & not necessarily problematic not likely the reason for lameness. Of course, she may also have articular ringbone, which you can't see, & anything else going on, aside from her tender hooves... or maybe it's 'just' the tender hooves.

Time to check her out thoroughly & try to get her healthy & comfortable, is now, while she's still young, while (hopefully)there is no/little serious & permanent damage.
