Lameness exams can be performed at the farm, event, or at our clinic. The exam consists of an in-depth evaluation of the horse, focusing on performance, history and rider/trainer feedback. The horse is observed in hand, on the lunge, and often under saddle. If lameness is evident, the source of lameness can be localized via diagnostic analgesia (nerve blocks). Imaging modalities are further utilized to help determine lameness and performance causes.
- Standing MRI
- Nuclear Scintigraphy (Bone Scan)
- Gait Analysis (Lameness Locator)
