My 12 year old arabian swings her lef back leg out to the side and almost hits her other back leg when she walks. I am taking her to the vet on saterday. I am worryed that I wont even get to ride her anymore becasue I heard that when they get a stifle injury it never fully heals. I also heard if it does heal you can only ride them for short periods of time. I love this horse I have owned for three years and she my barrel pony. Now she is doing this so I am hoping its fixable. Does anyone have any suggestions what I can do or if I can ride her? Thanks it would be a big help. Oh and I noticed this about a week and a half ago.
