Hard Ground Puts Stress on Legs

effects of hard ground on horses' legs

Nothing beats the feeling of going flat out on our horses, with the ground being super hard, working at speed puts even more stress on our horses legs, particularly the front legs. Watch the video to see how the front leg flexes with the force. This can lead to tiny tears in the tendons and ligaments causing inflammation.

These forces have been measured as high as 1.3 tonnes when a horse is galloping at 38mph, that’s over 2 times their body weight in force going through one front leg!

Using Cryochaps after exercise helps those limbs recover for the next days training. Get yours now
