A preliminary study to investigate the prevalence and progression of pelvic axial rotations among neonate foals.

The importance of symmetry and musculoskeletal well-being in the ridden horse is widely acknowledged
Pelvic asymmetries may be present in new born foals, or certainly develop very early in life.
Positive evidence of pelvic axial asymmetry from birth to 8-9 weeks of age in foals.

An investigation into the relationship of pelvic misalignment on forelimb hoof size

Pelvic rotation misalignment can be associated with reduced performance and lameness
Redistribution of locomotor forces to other limbs to off-load a limb is a compensatory mechanism
Evidence of a statistically significant relationship between the alignment of the pelvis and growth (length and width) of horse’s fore-hooves
