Soft Tissue Injury

My reining mare is a little lame in her right back leg...it must have happened this week because she was fine last week, It is not swollen, and there is little to no heat, and her lameness is very slight (have to watch very close to see it)...but it hurts her to spin and stop so I have to do something about it obviously....If you feel her leg it feels a little "mushy" just above her fetlock joint....but no swelling and little to no heat, so I was wondering if anyone has had this problem, and what you did, I am getting mixed answers from people about wrapping, ice gel, cold hosing, liniment...etc. I am giving her 3 days off of riding but will start back up with walk/trotting monday, should I just wrap her when she is being LIGHTLY ridden...put ice gel on...etc. what do you think

We always put ice gel packs on it for the first 48 hours. I've seen the littlle mushy symptom with no heat many times (which probably is a little swelling) and ice seems to help the most (and it won't hurt).

I'd give a little banamine and then cold hose. Linament after riding or poultice.... I think it's kind of up to you though how you handle...
