Lameness and Poor Performance Investigations
We offer a mobile and clinic based lameness investigation service with our highly experienced team. Whilst many lamenesses can quickly be diagnosed and resolved ‘on yard’, more complex or subtle lamenesses, as well as poor performance investigations, often benefit from coming in to our clinic where we have a hard trot up, lunge pad and stocks, as well as all our diagnostic equipment. As these cases can take several hours to properly work up, many clients find it convenient to leave their horses with us for the day, thereby avoiding the need (and expense!) of taking time off work.
Here at Hook Norton we understand the pressures facing modern competition horses –our team include vets who compete and own horses at the highest levels and we pride ourselves on a truly holistic approach, working closely with farriers, physiotherapists and other complementary therapists. We understand that there is an ever smaller division between the top placings whether it be dressage, eventing, showjumping, racing, endurance or driving, and we have vets with specific interests and experience across the disciplines to help ensure your horse is performing at their optimum. We recommend start, mid and end of season checks particularly for upper level athletes – please contact the clinic on 01608 730085 if you have any questions or would like to discuss an assessment.
