Horse health care in Florida goes beyond your barn. If you travel with your horse be aware of the viruses you may expose your equine athlete to. Check the Equine Reportable Disease in the county or state you're traveling to and assure your vaccinations are up-to-date.
In Florida horse health care may include training exercise by lunging. When lunging in a circle,the force that normally gets distributed equally over the entire joint surface in straight line exercise is concentrated on a much smaller area. If done infrequently or at slow speeds, this isn’t likely to cause much damage. Over time, if done consistently and at higher speeds will probably have some negative effects.Contact your veterinarian for more information.
