Also, is it in both front legs or just in one (if one which one)? Is it in the back legs also?
How could it have happened just after I bought him? Everyone said that he didn't do it in the two youtube videos that was taken before I purcahsed him...he wasn't drugged during the pre-purchase because he was sure spooking alot and was really energetic, and I doubt they were buting him up.
Still, I get more videos to see. Might be having an off day(s). I sure have off days alot, so I'm sure horses can have them also. I know for sure that the lunging video was an off day for him.
Maybe its a reaction from his sensitive soles, since the vet said he had sensitive soles than that may be why his strides are not as long as average strides. I would say it shouldn't affect riding too much, as long as your not doing incredibly hard riding or anything harder than easy trails and pleasure.
