Poor Performance Investigation

When a horse stops performing to their expected level, there can be a long list of possible explanations.  We have a particular interest in investigating such cases.  A logical diagnostic approach is critical, whilst at the same time we recognise that not every horse can be tested for every possible problem. We will take a thorough history from you before examining the horse in detail, before discussing the findings with the owner or trainer and coming up with a plan.

The type of problems that may be underlying a poorly performing horse include:

We also recognise that not all problems are physical! As frustrating as it may be, should our investigations fail to highlight a physical abnormality, then a behavioural or training issue may be the contributing factor and the help of para professionals may be required.
