Details about this module:
This module teaches the full evaluation of hind limb lameness. In this module, movement of the pelvis is realistic, consisting of both translation AND rotation. Hind limb lameness normally manifests not only in asymmetry in the vertical movement of the mid-pelvis: additionally, you are able to see that the hip on the lame side moves with a greater upward amplitude compared to the other hip. In this module you will learn this second assessment approach (the 'hips' method) while being able to practice the first approach your learnt in Module 2 (the 'mid-pelvis' method). In the real world, it is advisable to do both: sometimes lameness is more obvious when using the ‘mid-pelvis’ method, and sometimes when using the ‘hips’ method.
The principle for progression within this module is the same as that for Module 1.
You receive feedback on the correctness of your evaluation for each horse.
