This course is designed to teach students to recognize lameness and gait abnormalities in the horse. They will learn how to evaluate lameness using physical examination, palpation, and gait evaluation and will be exposed to veterinary diagnostic methods. They will also learn treatments for common skeletal, muscular, neurological, and hoof-related issues. The main goal is for students to become well-educated horsemen who can recognize lameness, handle the horse appropriately, and make educated decisions about treatment options.
