Strange front leg movement
One of the horses I work with had a new student riding them yesterday. He was fine at the walk, very forward and willing, but when we started trotting we would get intermittent ear pinning, a lot of tripping, and it looked like his front legs were 'wobbling' back and forth (not side-to-side). He is definitely slightly undermuscled in his back end. Has anyone seen/experienced anything like this? I'm leaning toward heel pain, and the farrier is coming out soon, but I'm curious about other people's experiences. Horse is a bigger draft/QH cross, mid teens.
