REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Joint congruity and ligaments restrain the distal limb joints from excessive motion in the transverse and frontal planes, but the magnitudes and direction of the horizontal twisting moments around the hoof's centre of pressure (CoP) that induce these motions are unknown. OBJECTIVES To quantify the horizontal moment around the vertical axis through the hoof's CoP at walk, and to determine whether these are symmetric. METHODS Nine sound Thoroughbred horses (mean… CONTINUE READING
