What do you get?

  • The study provides the opportunity for early detection of gait asymmetries that are not readily apparent to the naked eye. This allows for appropriate adaptation to your horse's current training and competition plans and allows for appropriate veterinary or physiotherapy input.

  • A verbal report revealing any recognised gait asymmetries or lameness at the time of examination.

  • A follow-up detailed one-page written report unique to your horse. Each report provides a qualitative assessment in a graphical stride plot diagram, as well as individual calculations of asymmetry variables for each limb.

  • There is no cost for this examination, however any follow-up investigation or treatment by your usual practitioner will be chargeable as normal.

Dissertation study

We are looking for case volunteers for our study into the prevalence of sub-clinical or low grade lameness in sports horses. The study uses the latest body mounted inertial sensors to quantify a horse's biomechanics and reveal any subtle asymmetries or lamenesses.

Would you like to participate?

We are looking for horses to join the study. All horses must be:

  • Sound, without any known issues (lame horses will be excluded and the trial aborted)

  • Between the ages of 4 and 19 (minimum 2yrs if TB in training)

  • Any breed or sex

  • Any discipline (eg. TB in training, dressage, showjumping, eventing, general riding)

  • In full work, relative to discipline 

What else?

  • Multiple horses available on a single yard are preferred

  • Yard must have facilities to trot in a straight line on a hard flat surface and a soft school surface

  • A handler who can safely and comfortably trot the horse up
