Training and Monitoring of Performance and Competition Horses
As a form of “preventative medicine”, thermography can prove invaluable in the fitness training of performance and competition horses. Regular inspections can be used to monitor performance throughout their training schedule. This can identify any undue stress or strain being placed upon the horse which may affect it’s performance or cause a potential injury before it becomes physically apparent.
For horses involved in jumping activities including Show Jumpers, Hunters, Eventers and Racehorses, a regular thermal inspection will assist the trainer and Farrier to identify how the horse is landing, whether weight is being distributed evenly or if strain is being placed continually on one leg.
