2018 Horse Talk for Mature People over 40

As there are frequent glitches in the old thread that are in the most part caused by the high number of posts in it, the thread has been closed and will continue here.

If you are over 60, are you still over 40?

I would not give up on Kahlua just yet. She may have just been nervous and that caused her to take a miss-step. Have you tried using a mounting block? My horse is weird about people mounting from the ground. Then again, she is weird about a lot of things.

@Celeste We should have changed the name. I've got 12 years until 40 but everyone so nicely puts up with me!

@phantomhorse13 Sorry about the storm and all of the damage hope everything gets cleaned up quickly!

@Spanish Rider Sorry about your rough lesson! I hope you feel better!

@AnitaAnne I don't have any help but I'm going through the same thing with Nacho. I'm looking for any and every possible explanation for his behavior and I think I'm seeing things where I'm probably not! Hope we both get answers soon!

Only video I have of Kahlua moving. Ground is rocky, uneven and has ant hills, but its the best I have.

She doesn't look lame to me...

AnitaAnne, My dogs do that all the time too! I have to lock them up to lunge. I agree she looks off somehow, but I canít place it. You say you saw this weird movement in her front leg while a rider was up? But not with no rider? Could she be compensating somehow? Anyway you could get a rider on her again and watch?

I so appreciate all the help! Sometimes I am worried I am worrying too much

Will be a few days before I can get her out there to ride. If you look at the video right after 0.1 thru 0.2 slowly and even move it backwards, that is where I saw the odd leg movement the most.

The other thing that I saw while she was riding, might have been the tendon bulging or something. Might try lunging her with some splint boots or sport boots if I can find a pair to fit her.

She was supposed to be my "broke horse" that I could put guests and kids on. Maybe even pony Chivas with. Instead she has been a money pit...

I think it was an excuse to head to the barn, it is in that direction...
