Lameness is the term used when a horse’s gait is impaired by pain or restricted range of movement.

The source of a horse’s lameness may be in the leg or hoof but could also originate elsewhere, such as in the back or neck, so a full investigation (or “work-up”) is usually required to identify the problem area.We offer full lameness work-ups at our clinic to pinpoint problems and provide targeted treatment, with subtle lameness cases being one of our specialities.

For those who would prefer not to have a full investigation we can provide practical advice and logical answers.
