Lameness and poor performance


We have a broad range of modern equipment to work up your lame horse at our clinic and at your yard.

Lameness diagnostics tend to focus on three areas:

A clinical examination of the horse to assess any areas of heat, pain or swelling by careful observation, palpation and manipulation can help to identify which area may be causing the problem. This is combined with assessing the horse in motion, often in hand in a straight line and on the lunge and sometimes under saddle. Again, this can give valuable information to help pinpoint where the lameness has originated from.

Whatever your concerns, give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, or read more on our Equine Fact Sheets linked below.
