Signalment: 6-year-old Chilean gelding, intended for Chilean rodeo presented for right forelimb lameness. HISTORY: Horse suffered a lacerating wound just above the right front heel bulbs 11 months prior to evaluation. He was re-introduced to exercise 3 months ago, but the rider complained that the horse was not responding to reining commands as usual and started to refuse going forward when needed. No obvious lameness was observed according to the rider. Prior Veterinary/Non-Veterinary Evaluation History: A referring vet did a quick lameness evaluation believing that there is a subtle lameness on the right fore; however, no blocks were...

SIGNALMENT: A 6-year-old Warmblood mare intended for use in competitive jumping.  HISTORY: The horse was acquired two years ago and has shown great promise for competitive jumping.  Starting 6 months prior to presentation, however, the rider has been experiencing progressive difficulties getting the horse “on the bit”. Moreover, he reported shortened hind limb strides and lack of hind limb propulsion, both during ridden exercise and lunging. Most recently the horse started jumping at an angle. Resting for several weeks did not change these clinical signs. The owner and rider initially presumed that back problems or poor saddle fit were causing...

  SIGNALMENT: A 22-year-old Warmblood gelding intended for use as “school master” dressage mount.  Presented for assessment of iliopsoas muscle because of prolonged non-resolving lameness. HISTORY : The horse was campaigned as an upper level dressage mount until 2015.  He had been successfully medically managed for RF recurrent lameness with intra articular therapy of the RF DIP and PIP joints.  In addition, he was receiving daily medication for the treatment of PPID.  In 2015, the lameness became non-responsive to therapy and was improved with shoeing changes.  In 2016, a marked 6-week non-resolving LH lameness became apparent and was successfully resolved after...

SIGNALMENT:  An 11-year-old, mixed breed gelding, used for competitive trail riding, was evaluated for severe left hind lameness that occurred approximately 2 weeks prior presentation. HISTORY: The horse became lame at a show about 2 weeks prior presentation. He fell while being ridden and became acutely lame on his left hind limb. The degree of lameness was increased the following day. The referring veterinarian was called to evaluate the lameness. A low 4-point nerve block was performed and the lameness was eliminated. The horse received oral analgesics for 5 days and was stall rested. No diagnostic imaging (radiographs...
