About this course

We are bringing together international experts to discuss how using objectivity can improve your lameness investigations.

The programme will cover the use of inertial sensors to assess horses in a straight line, on the lunge, during flexion tests, following diagnostic analgesia, and how to establish true from compensatory lameness.

We will explore the systems available, how you can get the most out of them and how your practice would benefit from using them.

The day will be split in two with the following lectures taking place at Slimbridge Wetland Centre in the morning:

  • Maarten Oosterlinck, a European Specialist in Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, will discuss the limitations and pitfalls of visual and objective lameness evaluation.
  • Thilo Pfau, who is flying over from Calgary, will share how to depict true from compensatory lameness and discuss gait assessment.
  • Giorgio Ricardi, an experienced lameness clinician, will discuss the use of gait analysis to assess the response to blocking and treatments.
  • Kevin Keegan, from the University of Missouri, will also be joining us for the day. Kevin led the way with the initial use of objective gait analysis in equine practice and will provide his perspective on the discussions and practical sessions.
  • The afternoon sessions will take place at B&W Equine Hospital, where you will have the opportunity to use the different objective gait analysis systems and identify ways to use objective gait analysis in your everyday case load. You will also be invited to join us for a tour of the hospital.

    Learning outcomes
