Hello everyone. I'm looking for some advice/tips from some of the more seasoned horse owners here. I'm trying to get better at observing lameness and soreness. I can mostly see when a horse is lame or sore in the front end, and if I know the horse I can feel it when I'm up in the saddle. I've got a pretty good handle on understanding how horses move when they're sound and some of the differences that can happen when they're stiff or sore. But that's mostly for the front end. The hindquarters are definitely more difficult for me to notice but I'm working on it. Anyways, my question is, what are some "tells" that you might see in a horse to suggest lameness? I'm talking more functionally instead of refusal or attitude changes. The reason this question comes up is I'm getting ready to get a prepurchase exam done on a horse and in the mean time, I'd like to see if I can notice some things on my own by the time I get an opinion from the vet. Basically a self quiz where I get the answers at the end and I've just been wanting to get better about it in general. I know this is a difficult topic to talk about on a forum since it's MUCH easier to watch a horse and tell someone what to look at. But I thought I'd give it a go and see what you guys have to say So again, what are some things you can see in a horse that might indicate lameness or soreness? Bonus question, any tricks for detecting it? I know my old vet used to have some stretches and stuff that he would use but I never got the chance to ask him how he did it and why it worked. Anyways, thanks again, and sorry for the long post!
