Horse Saddle Rider

Webinar 25 July 18.00hr- Recognising The Lame Equine Back


Broadcasting 25 July 18.00 London Time.

Would you like to broaden your knowledge of the wide ranging palpable and visual signs of a lame back?  As we can expect c50% of sport horses to be displaying signs of compensatory gait or lameness, unsoundness can be expected to develop in the back as the horse changes its gait to avoid loading painful structures.  This instructional webinar provides much, much more than an exploration of behavioural signs that something could be wrong with the horse’s back.  It is a 2 hour long presentation providing practical content for those equine and equestrian professionals and competition riders working with the precision sport horse, saddle and rider combination that want to gain a greater working knowledge of common identifiable back pathologies.  The presentation is ideal for saddle fitters, equine therapists, coaches, trainers, equine and equestrian students as well as horse owners.

Replay available with 12 months viewing access and a pre-recording in 10 different languages.

Ideal for those beginning to work with the horse saddle and rider as a combination, regardless of professional background.  Presented by PhD student, graduate human Sports Therapist, Equine Veterinary Physiotherapist and certified saddle fitter, Caroline Lindsay, who has been working successfully with horse, saddle and rider combinations for more than 2 decades.

This presentation follows on from How to Learn Equine Kinetic Anatomy.

Third in the series, this presentation is part of a comprehensive accredited course series created for equine and equestrian professionals and competition riders dedicated to ethical horse saddle rider performance.

Like people, horses and ponies can continue to move to the point of back pain yet still appear sound until that point.

Presented in a refreshingly unique highly informative format, this comprehensive webinar covers a wide range of common back conditions and how to identify many of them.  It includes a wide range of subclinical signs that saddle fitters should pay careful attention to when deciding whether or not to fit a saddle, what signs massage therapists need to refer to the veterinarian and what trainers and coaches need to be able to identify in working sport horses.

The presentation includes images, film, explanations and discussions generated from audience participation and focuses on typical signs of a wide range soft tissue compromise in the horse’s back.

Content includes:

  1. Challenges of the modern sport horse.
  2. The effects of asymmetrical load on the horse’s back.
  3. The most vulnerable structures supporting the back.
  4. What is typically meant by ‘back pain’.
  5. A wide range of non specific, subclinical back issues.
  6. A wide range of behavioural signs.
  7. A brief overview of the various diagnostic tests.
  8. A wide range of clinical and subclinical factors that can cause back pain.
  9. Film of good and poor back movement.
  10. How to spot thoracic sling engagement.

As well as being highly applied, this lecture is highly visual and has a wealth of video content for clarification of the theory.
