We bred our mare with frozen semen right after ovulation and everything went well. Then we let her out of the stocks into her stall and she urinated a lot right away.

I realize the semen is already past her cervix and on it's way but will this be detrimental in any way?

A vet told us after the fact it is beneficial to walk them for 20 minutes after breeding.

Assuming a "good" breeding or insemination (i.e. the semen has been placed correctly in the uterus - which happens in both live cover and AI) unless your mare stands on her back legs and jumps up and down 4 or 5 times immediately after breeding (in which case you perhaps shouldn't have bred her anyway :-)), the semen is not coming back out!!!

The vet that told you to walk the mare, if they suggested that in connection with "losing" semen, are also probably of the school of thought that throwing a bucket of ice cold water over her rear end after breeding is good too, as she will clamp her tail down and "prevent" semen loss... That or perhaps they tend not to get those "good" AI's I mentioned above... :-)
