Course Description
Equine Practitioners are regularly confronted with poor performance-related questions, such as: My horse has started to make a noise during exercise and struggles to keep up with the other horses; what do you think is causing it? Do I need to be concerned about teeth grinding? Another vet diagnosed a heart murmur – do I need to worry about it? Evaluating horses for poor performance can be a daunting task because different conditions may present with similar clinical signs, leaving vets wondering where to start the investigation.

This 2-day practical course covers the most common causes of poor performance such as cardiac problems, upper respiratory obstructions, systemic diseases, gastric ulcers and muscle conditions through lectures and practical small-group sessions. The topic of convalescence from musculoskeletal conditions is approached through lectures on how to devise tailor-made rehabilitation programs and physiotherapy of the horse with upper front- and hindlimb problems and back/sacroiliac conditions. The use of pulse, lactate and GPS tracking as training and rehabilitation tools will furthermore be discussed. In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will allow delegates to further their practical skills on live horses and cadaver specimens in small groups (3-5 delegates per ultrasound machine) at the following practical stations: Cardiac Ultrasound; Dynamic & Static Upper Respiratory Endoscopy; Static physiotherapy exercises for Back/Sacroiliac & Upper Limb Conditions; Dynamic (strengthening) Exercises for Back/Sacroiliac Conditions & Locking stifles; Gastroscopy; Poor Performance Case Discussions.
