Get Answers About Your Horse’s Soundness
No one wants to work a horse that might be sore.
Why guess about your horse’s well-being?
A thermal scan lets you see what your eyes cannot…
*Thermal imaging uses an infrared camera to find “hot spots” and can locate the source of trouble for horses that are showing vague symptoms of soreness, changes in behaviour, crookedness or reluctance to work.
*Thermography captures the “heat imprint” on the underside of your saddle following a ride and is a superb and cost-effective way to clearly assess saddle fit and find pressure points. A scan of the seat of the saddle following a ride can also assess rider balance.
*Thermal imaging is great for following the recovery from an injury and can follow the reduction of inflammation.
*A thermal scan is a wise choice to include in a pre-purchase exam.
*Horses are hard-wired not to show their pain; by the time your horse shows you he is sore, he has already had something brewing. An infrared camera can spot an issue two weeks or more before the horse displays symptoms.
*Thermal imaging captures the energy from heat. It does not emit radiation, the camera does not come in contact with your horse, and imaging can be done as often as needed.
*A thermal scan of your horse gives you a baseline to keep on file and refer to down the road. It can uncover areas of concern and it can also confirm that your horse is in great shape, which is also nice to know!
Why go into show season – or any training session – wondering in the back of your mind if your horse is ok? Get rid of guesswork, and get some answers!

I believe this is one of the most helpful and humane technologies in the equine health field. Thermal imaging is efficient and safe, and it can immediately identify areas of concern. It is a wonderful favour from you to your horse. - Barbara Fogler
