Horse owners are fully aware of the importance of hoof care. The way your horses’ hooves make contact with the ground can affect their way of going and can make a massive difference to their long term career, soundness and performance levels.

EquiLaterals offer a service especially looking at limb movement and hoof placement. The horse demonstrates specific gait characteristics when lame or pre-injury,  Our software can help to identify these characteristics that without expert help could cause clinical symptoms such as lameness and reduced performance.

It can also be a useful way to demonstrate the effects different types of shoes have. Frame by frame analysis is a great way to make analysing the hoof easier.

We can identify all aspects of hoof loading including:

  • first point of contact
  • break over,
  • orientation,
  • point of take off,
  • secondary loading
