How ACV Helped Reduce Lameness in my Horse

I have a beautiful QH gelding that I got in a trade knowing he had the beginnings of Ringbone on one foot.
Since some cases of ringbone don't always cause lameness I had hopes of him becoming sound. Well he did not and for 3 years I have had him barefoot and have been searching for something that would help or to be honest, a miracle cure.
He seemed fairly comfortable but still too lame to ride. I read a little on how ACV could help Arthritis so since ringbone is arthritis I thought I would try it.
Well about too weeks after I had been giving him about 1/2 cup a day on his feed I noticed when I trimmed him, his legs were not stiff! Then I noticed he was limping less and less.
It has now been 3 1/2 months since starting AVC and and he is no longer lame! I had also read that AVC could dissolve calcium deposits in joints, well I really think it must have done just that.
All I know is the only thing I have done different is feed him ACV and keep his feet short and balanced.
I think I found my miracle cure!
Everyday I watch for the old familiar head bobbing limp, so far he is fine. I have been riding him out on the trail and he heads out and my friend's horse can hardly keep up with him.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this by using ACV?
