    Yes if its not too wet or still raining tomorrow I am planning on having ago at riding Apache. My mum will be out with me and I 'll see if she could get a better video and/or some pictures.

    Haha I love that we got to watch like 3 mins of you riding and the rest was of the pretty blue sky and a horse grazing :P

    Haha maybe next time if you ride out of view edit the clip, I used Windows movie maker and it turned my 7min video of me going in and off the screen into a 2min one of just me riding

    Correct me if I'm wrong but that mare is around 22? So she probably is just stiff and since winter is coming it could also affect her as well, hope she is feeling better soon

    Haha yes I will try to do something like that next time I'm pretty lame when it comes to technology. The mare is 27 this year. That could be a possibilty. I think her age might be catching up with her.

    Oh wow 27, I would say she is pretty good for her age, maybe you should think of retiring her?

    I am pretty lame with the technology as well, but actually found the movie marker thing quite easy to use

    Oh dear 27? My arabs 25 and starts out like that its to be expected. If you want to make sure it's just stiffness try putting her on beet pulp for a week and if ur horse moves easier she's got some pain. But you can't keep a horse on beet pulp because it can cause ulcers. And if you do that make sure you get someone whose given beet pulp before just a thought.

    Thanks for the idea Hlover yes she basicly retired she is only occassionally ridden. When she is I try to warm her up very well before doing fast work and I don't expect a lot of her though normally she is fighting you to go.

    Beet pulp isn't any sort of magic feed, it won't help and old horse move easier.... AWS, it might be time to retire her or only ride her at a walk. She's not just slightly stiff, and it isn't the footing.. she is lame.

    Definitely lame on the RF. If there is no heat or swelling it is likely a difficult internal structure which would be hard to heal, or its advanced arthritis, possibly even ringbone or navicular.

    Wouldn't hurt to have the vet out to do some psychological tests on her, a basic flexion test and then get some suggestions on keeping her sound. If it is a soft tissue problem then it would be best to retire her to pasture completely, however with ringbone or arthritis it is good to keep them walking half an hour a few times a week, and on full turnout.

    Good luck!
