What treatment did the vet give her last time?
Could be something like laminitis meaning she is too painful to walk on her feet. This can be exacerbated at times of stress especially if she has a rich diet. Mycoplasma arthritis can cause similar signs but is usually associated with a deficient diet.
Both should be able to be managed with anti-inflammatories and antibiotics if appropriate.
