Horse & Rider Saddle Fitting Using Thermal Imaging

 All heat patterns are based on normal physiology.  After hundreds of examinations on horses’ backs using a thermal camera I will find the warmest  area is almost always down the middle of the back. “When we start to see break-ups  of these patterns, that’s a clue for us to look there more closely.  “Sometimes hot spots are very important, but cold spots are  just as important; a cold spot can be an area of swelling–where the  circulation has decreased–and that area stays sore longer   “We can do all sorts of things with IRT, and I find it invaluable in pinpointing all kinds of back problems and upper limb problems.Sometimes it can be difficult to detect. “Thermography can give us a look at the whole area.  A Certified Thermographer along with Vet/ Farrier knows a certain image correlates  with a certain problem. It can show us a sacroiliac [lower back]  problem.     I find thermography most useful for detecting something that’s causing a horse  to be just slightly off. The horse isn’t lame, but the rider usually knows  something  isnt right and the veterinarian/ Farrier is left perplexed because they can’t see anything. There may be no obvious clinical signs, but a Thermal scan may identify  something early as 2 weeks.    This is a great diagnostic tool to be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools x-rays,examinations etc.
