Equine Rehabilitation

(Please use the links above for more information.)

 

When would my horse require rehabilitation?

- Post Veterinary Injury Treatment

- After injury, trauma or disease

- Following orthopaedic surgery

- After a prolonged period of boxrest

- Following correction of foot imbalance

- During the management of specific conditions, e.g. tendon or ligament strain Trauma emotional or physical injury.

Following the onset of lameness, gait patterns are altered as the horse adapts his way of going to avoid discomfort. This new ‘learnt’ gait pattern may then become the norm, even after the original lameness has settled, and can then affect the horse’s ability to carry out his normal work or training regime.

 

If normal gait patterns are not re established then further injury is likely. A perceived schooling problem may actually be due to a compensatory gait pattern if the horse has an underlying injury or has not been correctly rehabilitated from a previous injury. Behavioural issues can arise from the horses inability to do the job he is being asked.

 

With specialist expertise in handling schooling and equine behaviour and psychology we provide a comprehensive understanding in all aspects of equine behaviour performance and handling of various issues and emotional stress behaviour.
