Nice Michele. I looked pretty carefully and I couldn't see much lameness. She seems much better and hopefully you can start riding her.

I would make a new post for that. Only because I dont really want my thread Hi-jacked. Im sure theres a bunch of different opinions on that.

You should start another post but I wouldn't lunge her at all. Get on and ride her.

She definitely looks stiff but not so much lame. What did the vet say? Or did you post it somewhere else and I missed it? Also, just as an FYI I would watch where your body is when you are "lunging". I realize you do Parelli and some things are different than the norm with that program but you really want your hips and shoulders pointed at or behind the girth not way out in front of your horse. Just because all of my horses would plant their feet and refuse to move if you were way out there and trying to lunge them. So just something to think about if you ever work horses that you haven't trained =)
