Poor performance in all equine athletes can be a frustrating problem.  The potential causes of performing below expectations are many, and can include lameness issues, upper and lower respiratory tract problems, skeletal muscle disease or damage, gastric ulcers or other systemic illness, heart problems and neurological deficits. At ABEC we use a systematic approach to addressing poor performance in horses, and our team of veterinarians will use our collective experience to help identify if there is something we can do to improve your horse’s performance.
