ETA: Suggestion. Send the link to that 2nd video, to your vet[s]

I can do that. I can send it to the 2nd vet as I have their email. He seemed like a REALLY good vet. Also...could she just have longer pasterns? My mom's horse does and it looks like that.

That wouldn't cause one side to over-flex and the other to barely flex at all. The only thing that would do that is if she is with-holding weight on the one side - pretty much always due to lameness or other injury, such as suspensory ligament injuries AB mentioned.

I did send them the video. But they have also lunged her in a round pen and palpated her tendons.But maybe he can watch the video and see something

It might be that it is more noticeable that she is with-holding weight from that side when she is carrying the extra weight of a rider. Hope you are able to have it looked into. As you saw from the link I sent, generally the diagnosis can only be made through ultrasound of the ligaments - palpation generally wont do the trick.

I just wanted to also mention that I talked to a lady on smartpaks and they are sending me three day sample of smart tendon to see if that helps her out. I talked to her about what is going on and I read reviews and it sounds like this could help her.
I called the vet and they will review the video tomorrow when he gets back in the office :)

Great news! Let us know what he says.

Also...probably shouldn't rush into starting a supplement (particularly a costly one) until you know exactly what issues there are to be addressed. I'm no vet, I am only telling you what I see, and what I think everyone else is seeing that your vet might not have seen, without seeing the horse move extensively. Never treat without a qualified diagnosis from a qualified individual first!

good thinking...welll...I guess I will have the supplement in hand. It is costly.
Also maybe corrective shoeing on the back legs?...might make her butt high though =/ I thought maybe I would see what the farrier says too as he is coming out tomorrow instead of saturday.

I am sending you a quick video..I sound and look heck of lame..but this will show you.
