Day 2 here in Reno and it has been awesome to watch some amazing competitions and to hear some great presentations.
Diego Almeida, CJF, TE, EE, FE, AWCF, co-presented on The Impact of Heel Wedges on Gait Kinematics & Hoof Morphology in Horses
Loved Diego's rant and the use of the term "Psychological lameness" which he defined as the lameness the horse has vs the lameness the owner wants the horse to have!
Check out the image below for some key results from the study.
