 Our equine limb anatomical course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of equine limb structure and function. 

Its made under supervision of Dr. habil. vet. med. Jenny Hagen from the famous institute University of Leipzig,

A comprehensive grasp of equine limb structure can help in making informed decisions related to breeding, exercise regimes, and overall management of horses.

Equine-limbs are designed to support the horse's weight and facilitate its locomotion. Each component, including bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and hooves, plays a vital role in enabling various gaits and movements.

A thorough understanding of the structure and function of these components allows for insight into how a horse moves, its potential limitations, and how to prevent and address any issues that may arise. This knowledge is fundamental for anyone working with horses, as it directly impacts training, performance, and overall equine welfare.

Hoof Cartilage

Hoof cartilage, also known as the collateral cartilage, is a critical component of a horse's hoof structure. These semi-rigid, V-shaped plates of cartilage are located within the hoof capsule, specifically along the sides of the coffin bone and the upper part of the hoof wall.

A closer look on joints

Studying equine joints involves understanding their complex structures, including the synovial membranes, articular cartilage, and ligaments, which collectively enable smooth and coordinated movement.                                


In the distal limb two prominent flexor tendons, the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) and the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT), they are critical components to facilitate controlled movement and maintain stability.
