Animals are no different from humans, as an athlete horses also suffer musculoskeletal injuries such as back pain, muscle strain, soft tissue injuries as well as requiring post operative rehabilitation and sports performance management.
Horses can show their discomfort in a variety of ways such as a change in behaviour, movement or gait adaption, development of resistance, reduced performance and behavioural problems. What used to be easy may become more difficult.
