A tool for the evaluation of slaughter horse welfare during unloading
Contributor(s):: Messori, S., Visser, E. K., Buonanno, M., Ferrari, P., Barnard, S., Borciani, M., Ferri, N.
This study aimed to develop a scientific and practical tool to be used to assess horse welfare after commercial transport over long journeys. A set of physical, behavioural and environmental measures was selected, covering welfare aspects of both transport and unloading procedures. The protocol...
Maximum permissible load for Yonaguni ponies (Japanese landrace horses) trotting over a short, straight course
Contributor(s):: Matsuura, A., Mano, H., Irimajiri, M., Hodate, K.
This study aimed to determine the load-bearing capacity of trotting Yonaguni ponies using gait analysis. The Yonaguni pony is one of the Japanese landrace horses, and has normal gait characteristics when trotting. As a breed they are small in stature and hence susceptible to the effect of the...

Comparing the pelvis kinematics of able-bodied children during normal gait and when riding a therapeutic horse
Contributor(s):: Brandon Rhett Rigby, Brian A. Garner (adviser)
Hippotherapy is a treatment strategy that uses horse movement as physical therapy tool for clients with a broad range of diagnoses including cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. The prevailing theory is that the gait motion of the therapeutic horse provides sensory stimulus and movement...

Factors affecting stimulus visibility for horses
Contributor(s):: Saslow, C. A.
In 2 experiments 11 Morgan horses (1 to 14 years old) were examined for the relative contributions of stimulus size, contrast, and environmental illumination to visibility of stimuli on the ground. Unconstrained horses were tested when walking freely in natural light. Repeated measures analyses...
Temporal variables of four-beat, stepping gaits of gaited horses
Contributor(s):: Nicodemus, M. C., Clayton, H. M.
Gaited horse breeds perform a variety of four-beat stepping gaits that are recognized and distinguished by the sequence and timing of the footfalls and by the limb support sequences during the stride. The popularity of the gaited horse breeds is increasing and accurate descriptions of limb...
A note on the linear and temporal stride kinematics of Olympic show jumping horses between two fences
Contributor(s):: Hole, S. L., Clayton, H. M., Lanovaz, J. L.
The aims of this study were to describe the temporal and linear stride kinematics of horses within a two-stride combination of fences and to make comparisons between the first and second intermediate strides. Video recordings (60 Hz) were made of eight horses jumping two vertical fences that were...
Temporal analysis of walk movements in the Grand Prix dressage test at the 1996 Olympic Games
Contributor(s):: Hodson, E. F., Clayton, H. M., Lanovaz, J. L.
Video analysis was used to measure temporal characteristics of the collected walk, extended walk and half pirouette at walk of 11 competitors during the team dressage competition at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Forelimb stance durations, hind limb stance durations,...
