    Powerful hind leg lameness every morning Three months ago I discovered that my horse had a lameness in the left hind leg. Something had happened during the night, or in the pasture the day before. Out of the stables the horse was moving as usuall, I rode it for 10 days after this event. The...

    This is probably going to be a long post so brace yourself. :-) I have a 13 year old paint mare and I have had her for about two years. According to the previous owner she was in a trail accident awhile before we got her. The owners said that she seemed to be sound on that leg. (It looks like a...

    Hello everyone. I've got an 11-year old Paso Fino mare, 14hh, who has finally finished her last surgical procedure. History: Surgery, you ask? On July of 2012, she got kicked in pasture by another horse and fractured the shoulder/elbow area of her right foreleg. All was going well until a...

    My horse has had this bone splint for maybe 4 to 5 weeks and limps only at the trot and any higher gaits, but not at the walk. If I touch it or squeeze it, my horse shows NO signs of pain. No flinching, pulling back, but he still limps!! :cry: I want to know if I should wrap it, keep him in his...

    Hi, for the past month my horse (8 year old TB, barefoot, seriously good doer) has had on and off lameness which is sometimes pretty bad and other times not so bad. Last week he fell lame and it's really bad, he's limping and finds it hard to walk and he walks really really slowly. We got our...

    I am new to the horse world as I have only owned horses and have only been riding for 2 years. I have a 16 yr old gelding who when I bought him was in great health besides being a little on the thin side. We got him and within months he was filled out nicely. He had shoes on all 4 feet at the...

    My 15year old TB is limping, he has been for awhile. He is on hoof supplements, and has been for the past 5 years. My farrier says he doesn't see anything wrong with them. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Any remides i could try?

    I have a 4 year old Quarter horse who has developed a bad limp in the past few months. For a while it did not worry me because she is young and loves to play in the pasture. To start with she would just walk it off and by the end of a ride would be back to normal. Recently the limp has gotten...

    About 2 years ago, my 7 year old Canadian had a suspensory ligament injury because she got caught in a wire fence. She recovered, but can it recur? For the past week or so, she has been limping on the same leg that she had her injury on before. I can feel any heat and there is no swelling...
