Relationships between fore- and hindlimb ground reaction force and hoof deceleration patterns in trotting horses

Gustås, Pia; Johnston, Christopher; Roepstorff, Lars; Drevemo, Stig; Lanshammar, H.

Abstract

Potential relevance: These results contribute to further knowledge about the characteristics of these potential risk factors in the development of subchondral bone damage in the horse. Further studies are required on the influence of hoof braking pattern at higher speed, different shoeing and ground surfaces with different properties.
