As long as her stall is large enough for her to be able to walk around in then being stabled in cold weather may be more beneficial to her than living out. She'll have a warm dry place to lie down and stretch out in - wet, cold conditions don't help arthritis at all and you can use stable bandages in the stall to also help keep her legs warm
You'll know how much hay she's getting and she can eat her feed in peace
If you watch any horses that are out in cold weather they will mostly all be standing together in a sheltered place where their hay is not wandering around exercising themselves!!
