Hi Barbara,
There are a couple of factors that come into play when considering if a few uneven steps following a flexion test are a problem or not. If it is a horse over 10 years of age and has an athletic job I do not worry too much. Conversely, if it is a young horse that is not ridden very much I am more concerned.
Thank you for the question.
MIke Pownall, DVM

Is it acceptable immediately following the flexion for the horse take one or two uneven steps, or would that be considered cause for further investigation?
