My 9yo mare Ellie has been constantly sore and off during our rides. She is fine to the right and then is always off to the left. As we continue to ride longer the more off she gets. We have had the vet and farrier out lately and they both said they did not see anything bothering her! I have tried so many products and shoes and everything! I have been very frustrated with this and really need help! Please comment any ideas,suggetions or thoughts!
Is the soreness in her hooves or in her joints/muscles. If it is in her hooves, maybe one of them is bruised. If you find that the issue lies more in her joints or muscles, then try stretching her before and after riding, or joint supplements. it could also be a lack of muscle that is causing her to be not as strong and feel off.
