Last week I had my farrier out and he noticed my 10 year old mare was stiff in her right back leg. I figured maybe I worked her too hard the day before but now it's been a week and it's still stiff. You can't tell at a walk or trot but when she canters it looks really sloppy and she kept trying to come back down into a trot. When she cantered on her left lead her back right leg took really short strides and almost looked like she was hopping with it. She's was fine putting weight on the leg though. I'm worried to ride her becacuse I'm afraid of hurting her. Anyway, I'm just not sure what to do about the stiff leg.
