Horse Athletes Get Injuries
Performance horses can be injured in many ways while competing. From a stone bruise, a sprained or twisted ankle, tendon, or
ligament strain inside the hoof capsule, to a quarter crack in their hoof. The harder a horse is worked, the hotter the weather,
the more fatigued they get, sometimes they'll simply miss-step or slip and end up getting injured.
When a horse's hooves are allowed to grow too long, the more lever you create and the more out of alignment the hoof
becomes, this is one of the reasons horses get injured. Quarter cracks happen when the horse is due for a trim and shoe,
rarely does it happen after they've been trimmed and shod.
For the love of your performance horse, book your horse’s hoof maintenance early and schedule them regularly. Please give us
