The other day when I went to ride my horse I noticed his fetlock joint was swollen. I checked it for heat and there wasn't any, he also let me handle it without any signs of pain. I lunged him so I could check for signs of pain or stiffness. He was fine at the walk and trot but at the canter he was very stiff on that leg. I hosed it and put liniment on it. The next day he was fine and the swelling had gone away. I think standing in his stall caused it to swell. I turned him out over night and when he came in it was fine. What should I do? He has had tons of problems with this leg after a horse had kicked him. I've had a vet check him and they cleared him to ride. They said he may have mild arthritis.
