  author={Sue J Dyson},
Successful identification, management, and prevention of injuries in sports horses requires a thorough understanding of the demands of each sport and the ways in which injury may be manifested. It is essential to be able to communicate with the client (be it the owner, the rider, or the trainer), which means understanding the terminology (or jargon) that goes with the sport. It is important to recognize what is involved in the training of the horse to allow it to compete in whatever discipline… Expand
Electromyographic evaluation of muscle firing patterns in the ridden horse during jumping as an objective method of informing current jump training programmes
The sport of show jumping (SJ) places great physical demands on the equine athlete. Despite this, selection and training strategies for the equine jumping athlete are largely based on anecdotalExpand
Assessment of ridden horse behavior
Assessments of the behavior of ridden horses form the basis of performance evaluation. The purpose of any performance being evaluated will determine the factors considered important, factorsExpand
Relationships between morphometric measurements and musculoskeletal disorders in jumping Thoroughbred horses
The relationships between linear and angular morphometric measurements and musculoskeletal disorders in jumping Thoroughbred horses could possibly provide indicators for better selection of jumpers with less risk of developing orthopedic disorders. Expand
Determination of coefficient of friction between the equine foot and different ground surfaces: an in vitro study
Slippery surfaces are a continuous concern in equine veterinary practice during both treatment and orthopaedic work-ups, especially when horses have to trot on circles. Sliding of the equine foot onExpand
