Welcome to the course!
The hoof is an important structure with a lot of different parts that work together as a whole. If one part fails, the whole hoof can fail, giving rise to issues of lameness. An understanding of the structure of the hoof is important to identifying signs of laminitis, navicular disease or other problems in your horse.
At the end of this course, you should be able to:
- Identify the parts of the hoof – internal and external.
- Discuss the function of each part of the horse’s hoof.
- Explain possible causes of navicular disease/navicular syndrome.
