“Prevention is always better than cure” and this is at the foundation of our Veterinary Service. Therefore in conjunction with Chiltern & Thames Rider we are embracing this ethos and offering one lucky reader a chance to make sure you can get the most out of your horse. We are offering a free “Clinical Examination” and a “Gait Analysis” evaluation worth £250!

The clinical examination consists of:

  • Detailed exam of the skin and eyes
  • Palpation of all the limbs for abnormalities.
  • Listening to the heart, lungs and guts.
  • Worm egg count.

The “Gait Analysis System”

This evaluation is used to help isolate any issues before they become problems. The system uses wireless sensors to track movement accurately to within millimetres and can measure up to 20x faster than the human eye. This innovative technology is quick, easy and completely non-invasive. The horse’s normal movement is not restricted or altered and the results are reported in seconds via a hand held tablet PC.
