Are you sure your horse is sound? How can you recognise subtle and less subtle signs of pain and lameness and how they can be investigated’
An evening lecture to ADR members at the Animal Health Trust
Wednesday 16th January 6-7.30 pm
Have you ever thought that your horse is not performing as well as he could? Have you ever wondered if she might have a behavioural problem? Have you realised that the way he moves is not quite right but he has perhaps moved like this for a long time? Did you know that many perceived riding issues are caused by an underlying orthopaedic problem?
Annamaria Nagy, sports medicine specialist, lameness expert and endurance veterinarian will give useful hints on how you, as a rider can read your horse better and recognise early signs of lameness and orthopaedic pain. She will also explain how lameness can be investigated at home and at a specialist lameness referral centre.
Early recognition and diagnosis can hugely improve outcome, allowing more successful treatment, earlier return to work and a prolonged working life of horses in any discipline. Annamaria will point out issues specific to endurance horses, whether enjoying pleasure rides or competing at FEI level.
After the talk there will opportunity to ask questions and discuss any lameness-related problems or concerns that you would like to know more about. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
