Locking Stifle in the Gaited Horse- What it is and How to Fix It (Video)

A common physical affliction among gaited horses is upward fixation of the patella, otherwise known as locking stifles.The symptoms of this may be so subtle as to cause the horse owner many nights of restless, worried wondering, or so obvious that it seems an otherwise healthy horse has become functionally useless. The good news is that oftentimes these animals – even those with very pronounced symptoms – can be brought back to soundness using basic riding and conditioning techniques. This video below demonstrates a horse with locking stifle and Brenda discusses simple ways to eliminate this issue in the gaited horse.
