Equine Health Issue

Inflammatory airway disease (IAD) is a widespread problem that can limit the athletic performance of equines but critically without them showing any visible outward sign of ill health bar the occasional cough. They may train well at home, answering the questions asked of them, but once under increased pressure in a competitive environment be unable to perform at the highest level. A separate study found that 84% of horses that were examined showed signs of IAD, meaning their athletic ability and overall wellbeing was compromised – read about this research in our June edition.
