What have you been doing with her? Anything harder then normal? Has she taken a hard stumble or fell? Because it sounds like some serious pulled/strain or torn muscles if everything is inflamed and swollen.
So the smart thing would be to give her some Bute or Banamine and give her a few days off to let her muscles heal. The more you work her when she is sore like that the more chance of further straining something.
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
