Hello there, this is Dr Weaver, I am sorry to hear your horse is walking stiff. That sounds like a horse that may be suffering from laminitis. Laminitis is a painful condition of the feet, that can become very serious, especially if untreated. I would have your vet out to examine your mare, soon. Do you have any bute that you can give her?
