Since you are located fairly close I would take the horse to one of 3 places and have the horse looked at. One would be OSU next would be MSU but out of the 3 I would prefer to use Rooden Ridle in Ky. That way you would know for sure what is going on and if the horse is or will ever be riding sound.

I definitely second the xrays and vet.
Im also curious if, as you know the pain associated with living with health conditions, why you would be willing to potentially subject her to more...

I've ridden a lame horse. Well I do. He's lame according to his owner.
But does a locked fetlock make him lame? He's compromised for it, and his attitude is no different, no limping no ouchies.

Also a thing about them not telling you when it's enough, it's sooo true.
My mare had an abscess in her hind hoof and she went a month not showing any pain until the day before is popped.
