CHOOSE GROUND WISELY

Your Horse (UK) - - Horse Care -

Hard ground causes cracked hooves, bruised soles, other con­cus­sive in­juries and maybe even sus­pen­sory lig­a­ment dam­age. Hard, rut­ted, un­even ground is es­pe­cially dan­ger­ous, when un­even load­ing of the joints can oc­cur (think ‘go­ing over’ on your own an­kle). Avoid­ing hard-baked tracks helps min­imise the risk of in­jury.
