Does anyone have any idea's or experience with Stifle problems. My horse has developed a problem with his hind leg which is giving him an action similar to Stringhalt. However he has been seen by a physio who has said he does have the other symptoms of stringhalt when turned on a circle or backed up. He has also had is back checked. He seems to get better with exercise and doesn't appear to be in any pain. He has been team chasing, eventing and show jumping recently with out any problems except an avertion to jumping large doubles. Any ideas of a cause for the problem? Or any useful tips on helping the problem

We had a pony on loan with locking stifles .He stayed really sound on a joint supplement and the more excercise the better.
