Poor performance investigations

5th March 2016

When your horse is underperforming it can seem difficult to put your finger on the exact cause. We are able to work alongside you and any other professionals (physiotherapists, saddle fitters etc) in order to establish a cause.

We can use the following to help investigate possible causes:

  • Gastroscopy: To investigate gastric ulcers and conditions of the stomach and duodenum
  • Endoscopy: To investigate disorders of the respiratory system and sinuses
  • Dynamic endoscopy: Some respiratory problems are only apparent when the horse is working and the use of dynamic endoscopy enables us to evaluate your horses upper airway whilst being ridden
  • Ultrasound: To evaluate the lungs, heart and abdomen
