EXPAND YOUR JOINT KNOWLEDGE You run your hands down your horses' legs before and after every ride looking for lumps bumps and swellings. Learn more about what is going on in your horses' joints with Equine Guelph's online tool designed to take horse people on an interactive journey from a healthy joint to an inflamed, arthritic joint.

"Journey through the Joints" offers user-friendly activities on the anatomy of a joint. View the 360 degree tour of an actual horses' joint!

"It is critical to have a basic knowledge of joints to better understand the causes and care of lameness."
