Basic objective

Offer a comprehensive program of advanced education in the field of equine lamenesses and osteoarticular, musculotendinous and nervous pathology, covering the different parts of the locomotor system of the horse.


General Goals

  • Continuing education of equine practitioners for a better management of patients.
  • Development of knowledge on the diagnosis and management of the causes of pain and lesions involving the structures of the locomotor system of horses.

Specific Goals

  • To present the anatomical and biomechanical data allowing understanding of the etiopathogenesis of the lesions as well as the management of the different conditions.
  • To share the latest developments in diagnostic imaging of bones, joints, tendons, muscles, nervous system.
  • Standardization of imaging procedures for a better communication between practitioners and/or referring centers.
  • To improve the technical skills of practitioners in the use of non-invasive diagnostic procedures.
  • Publications of new diagnostic procedures, new concepts in pathologic conditions of the equine locomotor system, unknown clinical entities.


  • 2 year program - all 8 topics will be covered over the 2 years.
  • 3 seminars (2.5 days each) a year organized at 3 different equine clinics (northeast, mid-atlantic, west)
  • At least one or more seminars will be held in Europe per year.
  • Each seminar (20 hours) is composed of:

-1st day: lectures and clinical cases
-2nd day: demonstration -3rd day:lecture or practice

  • Notes will be distributed to the participants.

100% refund with greater than 30 days notice
75% with 2 weeks to 30 days notice
50% with less than two weeks notice

Eight Topics

-Distal frontlimb:foot, pastern, fetlock jt.
-Middle frontlimb: palmar fetlock, metacarpus and tendons, carpus, carpal canal
-Proximal frontlimb:forearm, elbow and shoulder
-Distal hindlimb:foot, pastern, fetlock, metatarsus
-Middle hindlimb: hock and crus
-Proximal hindlimb: stifle and thigh
-Neck and thoracolumbar area
-Lumbosacral area and pelvis

For each topic, the following data will be considered:

  • Descriptive anatomy
  • Functional anatomy and Biomechanics
  • Clinical (physical and dynamic) examination including diagnostic blocks
  • Diagnostic imaging (radiology, ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, MRI)
  • Treatment and management
  • Prognosis and evolution
