Painful and potentially debilitating tendon and ligament injuries are among the most common and serious physiological problems facing performance horses. The severity ranges from minor injuries to those that end careers or even the horse’s life. However, with proper treatment, these injuries can be overcome, and permanent damage minimized.

Writing in concise, accessible language, equine veterinarian Linda Schultz provides the most up-to-date information on identifying, treating, and managing tendon and ligament injuries. You’ll review basic anatomy, understand how and why these injuries occur, and discover the effects of horseshoeing on tendons and ligaments.

    A must-have book, October 27, 2004

    The following book review was published in Horse & Rider magazine, November 2004.

    Title: Howell Equine Handbook of Tendon & Ligament Injuries
    Author: Linda B. Schultz, DVM, PhD
    Reviewed by: Karen E.N. Hayes, DVM, MS

    If you find vet speak about tendon and ligament injuries to be clear as mud, this book is a must-have. In addition to being thorough, accurate, and concise, it’s written in layman’s language without being “dumbed down”-it’s targeted for the well-informed, interested, and intelligent horse owner.

    Perhaps most importantly, if you read this book you’ll understand not only how to partner with your veterinarian in treating tendon and ligament injuries that might afflict your horse, but also how to help your horse avoid these potentially career-ending mishaps by using proper warm-ups and conditioning, being mindful of the impact of various footings, and understanding how shoeing can support or threaten tendons and ligaments.

    Although the bulk of the book is aimed at explaining the various therapies, from cold-water “hydrotherapy” to surgery to alternative treatments, you’ll come away with enough knowledge to carry on a spirited conversation with an equine orthopedics specialist without even breaking a sweat. This could come in handy if you’re ever in a situation where two or three vets disagree on the best treatment for your horse’s injury (and believe me, that’s a common scenario).

    It’s a surprisingly easy read, and the photographs and drawings really help to clarify this vital subject that usually causes even the staunchest horseman to get glassy-eyed.

    You won’t find this caliber of information in most general horse-care books, and unless your horse never carries anything heavier than cowbirds on his back, its information you really can’t afford to miss.

    This little book packs a punch when it comes to explaining what tendon and ligament injuries are in the horse. It covers everything from anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment of horse injuries. One nice thing is that it also covers complementary medicine and also presents some nice case studies. A great book.

    An easy reading up-top-date guide on tendon and ligament injuries in the horse. The book covers the basics of what researchers know about how and why injuries occur, prevention strategies, and therapy including non-traditional therapies. It includes a sample work-out chart for your recuperating horse, something I haven’t seen in any other book. The book also stresses the importance of having a good working relationship with your veterinarian and how to work effectively with him/her. All in all, it’s a great book for the horse owner looking for all of the essential information needed to care for their horse’s tendon and ligament injuries. I highly recommend this five start book.
