The joints of horses
The joints are connected between two bones that make movement possible. Most joints in horses are mobile, also known as synovial joints, the ends of the bone are covered in cartilage. The cartilage protect the bones and is important for the protections of the bones in the joints. Around the joints you see the joint cavity with in it the so-called synovium. This is the thick liquid and can be seen as the oil in the joints. Hyaluronic acid are one of the most important components of the synovia and is essential for healthy and strong cartilage. The joints ensure the mobility and help your horse to move.
The muscles of horses
The muscles of your horse consist out of muscle fibers, that are attached with tendons to the skeleton. A nerve runs to each muscle, which in turn sends a signal to the muscle to which it responds. The muscle fibers shorten or lengthen which makes movement possible. The horse’s body consists of about 700 muscles, which is about 40-50% of its total body weight. Without muscles, a horse would not be able to walk, chew and eat or wag its tail. It is therefore important that your horse’s muscles are strong and healthy.
