Description

Principal Investigator: Harley Debeuc. This project aims to assess the average equestrian’s ability to detect lameness in horses using videos of lameness workups. It could prove useful to know the average horse owner’s ability to detect lameness as this may affect the way the veterinary profession assesses and monitors a client’s horse. It could also encourage improvement in education of lameness detection to improve horse welfare across the UK.
