About The Book

The determination and management of performance-limitation in sport horses is very challenging, especially within a short time period before an important competition.

In this book experts disclose their experience on:

  • What do we know about the poor performance horse?
  • The gastrointestinal tract: medical, nutritional and surgical considerations.
  • Could it be the heart?
  • Could it be the muscles?
  • Monitoring orthopaedic health in competition horses.
  • Could it be the foot?
  • Could it be neurological?
  • Cases where physiotherapy helped to make a difference.
  • Could it be respiratory?
