    Hello! I have a 12 y/o mare (14hh Arabian) that I've had for 2 years now, and when I got her, she could not canter more than 2 or 3 strides at most. She had a foal at 5 y/o (before I bought her), which may have distorted her body a bit considering she's only 14hh and he's about 16hh now. She...

    I lease a 17 yr old arabian, and i recently noticed that her stifle seems to 'pop' when she moves and it makes a popping sound. I've heard that she's had stifle issues in the past, but this seems a little strange. She is older, and it is winter, im wondering if its possible that the cold weather...

    I have a 5 y/o OTTB and I am not sure if he has stifle issues or what is going on with him. He always seems sore when I pick up his back right leg, and when he is ridden he "buckles" it. Feels like he is tripping but it just looks like his Pastern and fetlock are giving out, I think it might...

    My 17 yr old OTT STB gelding has locking stifles. His stifle will pop and crack. Has crepitus. He always had the slightest hitch. Tracks up a little less with the bad leg than the good one. He has always held that leg up for long periods of time. I think it is because he is self treating because...
