Equine Gait Analysis Day

Saturday  4th November 2017

At Abbey Vets, Llansabbath Barns, Llanellen, Abergavenny, Gwent, NP7 9BY

Russell Guire from Centaur Biomechanics works with many horses across the UK in all disciplines. Markers are placed on the horse’s skin which identify the joint centres. The system is then able to track these markers and the joint movement. The high speed cameras are able to pick up any subtle changes within gait pattern which can indicate weakness/lameness. Each horse will receive both gait and farrier analysis.

Benefits of the analysis:

  • Evaluating the horse’s soundness and asymmetries

  • Evaluating any weakness and provide advice on support

  • Evaluating horse’s foot balance

  • Ultimately help to prevent injury and maintain soundness

Each horse assessment will receive:

  • Slow motion images of foot balance on the day

  • Receive all farrier files and FREE software to show images within 3 days which can be useful for your farrier

  • A detailed report of the horse’s motion and foot analysis within 5 days
