A note on the welfare implications of hyperflexion in the training of the ridden horse

Abstract

Only a small handful of novel studies have been published since the 2006 Lausanne meeting on hyperflexion. Unfortunately, these studies have tended to be marred serious flaws in methodology, limited numbers or unhelpful parameters used. This leads to the conclusion that there is still insufficient scientific evidence to confirm unequivocally whether or not there are welfare issues involved in training techniques using hyperflexion.
