How might a history of bilateral injuries to the coxal tuber affect a horse's soundness?

Susie it would depend on how serious the injuries are. If the injury did not result in fracture of the ilium, luxation of the sacroiliac joint, or permanent damage to the muscles that attach to the tuber coxae the horse should recover 100% from blunt trauma to the tuber coxae whether unilateral or bilateral.
