So, I just got a new horse and the vet check is about to happen . The only concern that just came up was that she was demonstrating stringhalt leg motions. The owner was VERY honest, and said that she was very good at stretching her hinds, and sometimes did that stringhalt like motion, but very seldomly. I was up there quite a few times and she never even did it. Now, at the new barn, she's really jerking (not necessarily fast, but high and very much so. I figured that the cold might have made it worse, and I'm reading now that the mucky paddock that she's in would make it again-worse. Just wondering if that is, and if any one has any experience advice.
I am looking to event at the higher levels... WIll that prevent me from doing so?
