Horses have helped shape our nation with the work they've done, they are powerful and awe inspiring animals, but few people understand how surprisingly delicate these majestic creatures are.

-Mobile hospitals take the care right to the farm
-ICU available at modern equine hospitals
-Determining why horse has problems with legs or gait
-New technology available to determine why horse is lame
-Proper dental care
-Horses can be injured by non-licensed service
