Horses are prone to a variety of injuries, but the majority of these injuries are preventable. If you own a horse or work with one regularly, it’s important to know how to evaluate the animal’s body when it’s injured, and how to determine the severity of an injury. This guide will help you locate an injury, assess its impact on your horse’s health, and make decisions about the next steps you should take to restore your horse to full health.
There are three different ways you can tell if a horse is injured. One is by feeling the body of the horse to check for any abnormalities. Another is by looking at the horse’s gait as it walks and runs in order to see if there are any issues that could indicate an injury has occurred recently or sometime in the past few weeks or months. Finally, you can ask your veterinarian about specific injuries they may have seen while examining other horses at racetracks around town.
In order to properly examine a horse, you need to know where their body parts are located so that you can check them for injuries. The first thing to do is feel for any bumps or lumps on each animal’s backside (near where its tail would be). If there are none present then move onto checking their legs by pressing firmly down with your fingers until they reach bone underneath all layers of muscle tissue; make sure not to press too hard though! You don’t want any damage done after all this time spent searching for those bumps!
Afterwards you will want to look at how the horse moves when it walks or runs around an area such as a pasture or track
