The stress response is an ongoing problem in almost every horse, which can impact their mental and overall health. It can also dramatically impact the predispose to the development of injuries and the recovery of damaged tissues. Realizing that the stress response is a key player in most equine related health and lameness conditions, you need to seek viable options to help mitigate the harmful damage.
In a prior article, I have discussed the stress response and how it can interplay into horse health and soundness. This stress response is often chronic or ongoing in many horses, attributed to:
- Herd dynamics
- Feed regimen
- Housing and environmental factors
- Body Condition
- Injuries or sources of pain
Some of these issues you can address and alter, as a horse owner, but many others are just out of your control.
Considering that stress is an ongoing factor, despite most of our efforts, it just makes sense to put forth efforts to manage the negative pathways that develop.
