    I'm seeing front right and my trainer concurred.

    Am I correct on the RF?

    If it's a video it won't load for me, my computer is acting like a chestnut mare though.

    it's more noticeable in the circle to the right, where it looks like she is stepping heavier on the right front?

    I feel like it is her back right foot. I think a right front foot wouldn't improve like it did when you changed directions, where a hind end issue might.

    *Sigh* She scuffed up her stifle about a week ago, but wasn't off immediately after. I wonder if she tweaked something when we had some of the bad weather (including hail) this past week. There's no heat or swelling in any of her legs.

    Yeah. She felt fine the couple rides I had between her scraping up the stifle and loosing her left front shoe. Then sat last Friday through Monday until the farrier could get out. Tuesday was when I noticed she was somewhat off. Didn't make it out Wednesday, and Thursday she was still off. Obviously, per the video, still off.

    That's concerning. I would investigate that stifle.

    Right hind...fo sho
    Is she sensitive with hoof testers? I'd start at the foot looking at that then work your way up. Is stifle hot or inflamed? Careful, don't get kicked...but is there a reaction when PalpatinG? Eta...I'd make dang sure there isn't an infection near that stifle.
