Rehabilitation areas we are currently studying and are interested in advancing:
1: Stretching exercises for chronic laminitics and club footed horses. See rehabilitation section of resources page.
2: Walking exercises for stabilizing chronic laminitics.
4: Quantifying back pain in horses.
5: Continuing to see how the Healthy Horse Hoof Test helps. As of 4/15/2014, 413/653 horses (64%) from 45 states had scores suggesting they are at higher risk for laminitis. Hopefully the test has helped these horses get help? Give us your feedback.
