While physiotherapists do not often play a significant role in the management of forelimb injuries in horses, equine therapists must still have a detailed understanding of the front limb. This will enable them to determine if referral to the veterinarian is necessary and to identify any compensatory dysfunctions that may respond to physiotherapy input. This course, the second of two courses on the equine forelimb, will introduce the fundamentals of the physiotherapy assessment and management of horses who have front limb dysfunction.


This course aims to provide a framework for the physiotherapy assessment and treatment of the equine forelimb.


This course is made up of videos, readings, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
