Navicular Disease in Horses [Infographic]

Not actually a disease, this condition is one of the most common causes of lameness in horses. The navicular is a very tiny bone that can cause huge problems.

Problems with the navicular bone are responsible for up to 1/3 of all front-limb lamenesses.

This Infographic by Claudia Summers for TheHorse.com gives a simplistic but clear explanation.

For all those owners meeting this hurdle. There are veterinary options to keep your horses sound and a physio can help bring your horse back to form after treatment. Get in touch with me if you’d like help.
