If your vet finds that the hips are bothering him, he/she may recommend a "wash-out" period between changing types of NSAIDs. If that is the case, tramadol is a pain med that can help during this time frame. I think your idea of starting at the low end dosage is great until you can get in to see your vet. HTH!

You could also try offering him a Heating Pad or hot water bottle(s for the pony!) to see if it helps for some temporary relief.
