"Wintergarden" 23 yo Belgian Warmblood mare. Seemed stiff & inflexible in the past few months during light riding. Distinctly lame in left hind the day after a longer than normal trail ride. At the time of this video she had received two doses of 2g bute at 12 hour intervals. We started her on acetyl-d-glucosamine injections every four days - she has received 3 doses. Winter is on full turnout 24/7 and will not tolerate stall rest.

My mare is the same way. She's only 8. We found out it was stifles and the vet said to work her 30+ minutes a day. Which means-walking in a straight line, backing up numurous times, trot over poles, etc. He also said to use bute as an anti inflammatory.

My horse is doing the SAME thing. What did it end up being?

At that age, probably arthritis creeping in. MSM! MSM is wonderful, it keeps my mare, with her hock spavins, and my neighbor's horses with their arthritis, sound to ride.

I have a horse who had something like that... Looks like it could be the stifle. If it's a torn meniscus, surgery is the only option. My horse had surgery and it was successful, but the recovery, rest and rehab took approx 15 / 16 months.
