“The interrelationship of lameness, saddle slip and back shape in the general sports horse population” by L. Greve and S. J. Dyson has been accepted for publication and been fully peer reviewed by Equine Veterinary Journal. The abstract and supporting information for this article can be found here on Wiley’s online library.

The research concluded that: “Many horses with hind limb and/or forelimb lameness go unrecognized. Saddle slip may be a sign of hind limb lameness. Education of the equestrian population to identify lameness and saddle slip is required.”
