Horses are used throughout the world for pleasure and sport and for many people they become part of our everyday life. Unfortunately horses have to rely on their owners, trainers and riders to identify problems with their mobility. This means that many problems go unresolved until too late and the horse is either taken out of competition for ever or worse has to be put down. GaitSmart Pegasus provides the solution, monitoring the precise limb motion and identifying abnormalities long before they are visible to the human eye. This information is then used by the veterinarian and physical therapist to subscribe the best course of treatment.
