According to internationally famous veterinarian, Dr. James Rooney, most lameness in horses is related to mechanical factors. These include the horse's conformation, the type of work asked to do, and the various incidental traumas experienced. From this perspective, Dr. Rooney intelligently and logically examines the question of lameness -- the tell-tale signs of lameness, the causes of lameness and the structures affected by lameness. He clearly explains the mechanical aspects of normal movement in a horse and suggests various strategies for preventing and treating lameness.
