There is an increase in soft tissue injuries in horses (ligaments and tendons). This seminar discusses the role of fat in two ways. The first is fat’s role in inflammation and the resorption of proteins needed to maintain structural integrity. The second is the increased weight of the horse from excess body fat. I also discuss several laws of physics directly responsible for the damage seen in these tissues.
