Equestrians who are able to see their horses' lameness are more successful in whatever discipline they undertake. Those that can perceive subtle gait deficits will recognize small problems before they become big problems. The more timely problems are recognized and addressed the less likelihood they have of becoming long-term or permanent issues. A proactive approach to managing lameness in the horse is the best approach.


The biggest factor currently affecting our ability to successfully manage equine lameness is the time-frame between the ONSET of a problem and its eventual RECOGNITION. We can shorten this interval by:

  • Improving the ability of the primary caretaker (horse owner, groom, trainer, farrier, etc.) to visually detect subtle lameness and

  • Improving dialogue between the primary caretaker and veterinarian at the outset of a problem.

     

    Of course, in order to recognize lameness, we have to know what it looks like. The techniques presented in this seminar will help the participant develop an appreciation and basic understanding of equine locomotion with the goal of being better prepared to recognize, classify and rate equine lameness when it occurs.


    Each participant will acquire fundamental tools necessary to identify the common visual markers displayed by lame horses. Each will also learn when and where to look for these markers so as to glean the maximum amount of information possible from their assessment. Pattern recognition will be the basic technique utilized during our study of the lame horse throughout the course of this seminar and wet lab.


    Lameness for the Layperson is open to all horse enthusiasts: owners, farriers, trainers, veterinarians and other equine professionals… anyone that would benefit from improving their “eye” for lameness. The seminar comprises both classroom and hands-on instruction. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lame horses to the event for free group evaluation. Further diagnostics and/or treatment of individual horses may be performed upon request at the conclusion of the event.
