Here are the KEY POINTS about navicular syndrome in horses:
- The current term is “Caudal Heel Pain” because of the many different causes but 1 area affected.
- A lot of research has gone into accurately diagnosing the origin of caudal heel pain.
- The overall root of caudal heel pain can be associated with a steep pastern angle and a low heel / long toe hoof.
- Understanding the vector forces on the hoof is not complicated and can help in understanding how to prevent caudal heel pain.
- Prevention is important because once a horse develops caudal heel pain, it usually is degenerative and a lifetime of pain.
