Corona has been out of work for about a month and a half because she was looking a little thin and we've been adjusting her diet/getting her teeth floated to help her out. She's back up to her ideal weight and looking fantastic, but when I went out to ride her today she was doing some strange things with her legs. When I first tied her she was fine, but as I started brushing and tacking her up, she started fidgeting a lot. She keeps switching her weight from foot to foot, and occasionally lifts one of her forelecks, extends it out, and holds it up in the air for 3-5 seconds before putting it back down again. At first I thought she was just being fidgetty, since she's always been a bit of a pain when tied, but she kept doing it.
I went ahead and got on her with the idea that she might just be stiff, and warmed her up really well. She doesn't FEEL sore, and when a friend watched her she wasn't moving awkwardly or anything, but I can't help but think theres something off here. I just did a short walk-trot ride and cooled her out really well, then brought her back. I checked her over and didn't see any swelling or feel heat. Washed her legs off, then put her back up. She still did a little of the shifting around after the ride, though not as much, so I'm just not sure.
Heres a video (click it) of before the ride to show a little of what she was doing.

Not sure if it matters, but she's a six year old ASB mare. I also tapped each of her feet to see if it might be a problem there, but no sensativity. What do you guys think?
