[POSTPONED] 2021 Hambletonian CE Seminar & Breeder’s Crown

October 29 - October 30

Introduction to Objective Lameness Measurement Wet Lab

By Dr. Kevin G. Keegan | POSTPONED TO 2022

Most horses display lameness best during the trot. Horses will be instrumented with body mounted inertial sensors and evaluated for lameness while trotting in a straight line on a lead shank and while lunging in a circle.

Advanced Lameness Measurement of Standardbreds Wet Lab

By Dr. Kevin G. Keegan | POSTPONED TO 2022

Harness horses present certain difficulties for detecting lameness compared to other horse breeds because they do not always trot regularly on a lead shank.  However, body-mounted inertial sensor data can be collected with horses tacked up and on the track.  Horses will be instrumented with body-mounted inertial sensors and evaluated for lameness while trotting (or pacing) under tack and on the track.

20+ Years of Measuring Lameness

By Dr. Kevin G. Keegan | POSTPONED TO 2022

Lameness is a clinical sign.  The history of the development of an inertial sensor-based method of lameness detection and evaluation for equine veterinarians will be briefly presented.  Analysis of data from the measurement of lameness in thousands of equine cases over the years has provided information relevant to the diagnostic workup of horses with lameness.  Lameness variability, significance of change in lameness after blocking, and using inertial sensors to help predict primary source of lameness will be presented.  Special considerations for using body-mounted inertial sensors on harness horses will be presented.
