How to Assess Hoof Landings

My first ever attempt at making a video, and I think it’s an important topic!

One way I assess hoof comfort is by watching movement and the biomechanics of the distal limb. Heel first landings are a big “tell” to me in soundness- is the horse comfortable enough to fully extend their limb and weight their caudal hoof?

If you have ever wondered how to assess a heel first or toe first landing, check out this 2.5 minute long video to learn more… Happy filming!
