The most unusual part of this history is that she is sound 2 hours later. She has been lame in both front legs and radiographs are negative. My concern is she may have weekend warrior syndrome. Long periods of inactivity followed by intense activity that leads to soreness. I would attempt to build up strength and pad toughness by going on walks every other day. Slowly increase both distance and speed until she is in good shape over a period of 8 to 10 weeks. Then try the park again.
