Recognising Pain Related Poor Performance with Dr Sue Dyson

Horses that aren’t quite performing as they should be is a common issue and can leave you questioning your training and general management to find the answers. One fundamental skill we should all have is the ability to recognise when these issues are pain-related.

It’s easy to overlook mild, multi-limb lameness and mild pain-related issues but it’s essential for the welfare of the horse to be able to identify when this is the problem. This interesting and educational seminar with Dr Sue Dyson takes you through the straightforward system Sue has developed for assessing horse movement and comfort. You'll learn how to use this system and different tips and techniques that give you the confidence to recognise pain related poor performance.


The online package is made up of three videos:

  1. How to recognise low-grade lameness

  2. How do horses adapt their behaviour in the face of musculoskeletal pain?

  3. Social licence: Do we have evidence to support the use of horses in competition?
