Sometimes, hoof rehab or lameness cases can feel maddening. We can get to the end of our rope with what has worked for other cases, and still feel at a loss. It can seem there is some missing link to that one horse’s hoof issues or chronic lameness… But finding out what it is can be quite the task.
Through my never-ending quest to learn more about what can be done to grow healthier feet on the horse’s I see, I stumbled across Celeste-Leilani Lazaris, a trainer and bodyworker whose focus on the thoracic sling and surrounding soft tissue has helped many owners and professionals identifying that “missing link” in their cases.
I reached out to Celeste to chat with her about how weakness in the body can affect the feet, and what we can do about it. We discuss crushed heels, high/low, low palmar and plantar angles, NPA, and more.
