Shin soreness is a training injury in Thoroughbred horses that is characterised by pain on palpation of the shin, or third metacarpal bone, and is often associated with an unwillingness to work at speed. This study investigated the training-, track- and horse-related risk factors for shin soreness. The results demonstrate that training methods are a major risk factor for shin soreness. These results are very important because they demonstrate that wastage in the industry could be reduced and horse welfare can be promoted if training methods are refined.
