January 2020: EquiMoves trials in Florida
In January 2020, EquiMoves was used in trials with high-level dressage horses. The experiments were done in Florida by Hillary Clayton, Sarah Jane Hobs, Filipe Serra Bragança, Marie Rhodin and Elin Hernlund. The goal of this research was to understand better the gaits and movements of these high-level dressage horses. Using EquiMoves lameness-analysis software, the authors expect to be able to design training exercises to improve straightness based on an individual horse’s asymmetries. A description of the trials and their goals is presented in the USFD Connection online publication from September/October 2020. The publication is available at this link.
