Let’s go on a tour of the equine joint! This can help you understand what is happening below the surface and how to manage joint inflammation.
There’s a common saying: No hoof, no horse.
Although that is exceedingly true, we’ll take it one step farther and say that nearly the same can be said of joints… especially leg joints. It’s amazing how the delicate structures within the equine leg joints can support such large creatures — until they can’t.
That’s why we thought this interactive tool from Equine Guelph was super cool. Take a tour of the equine joint and learn what’s normal and what’s not.
