    Unhappy shes limping :/

    Hey, was wondering if anyone could give me some advice?
    Today me and a friend rode out and we did a bit of a gallop ect, but nothing compared to usual. Then when we came back my horse was limping on one of her front legs and when she went to rest it would shake. When we walked her around the yard she had a little limp but her leg wouldnt bend, but the strange thing is its not hot or swollen, we left it for about an hour and it was still the same. Its the first time this has happened to me so didnt know if maybe I was over reacting?!
    Cheers :) xx

    I would suggest getting a vet out to see her pronto.

    Inability to bend sounds like a joint problem, something could have torn or locked up. The shaking is probably caused by the weight on the leg.

    As I said before, I would get a vet out as soon as possible before things get worse.

    Agreed. Cold hose to prevent swelling in the meantime.
