I did a search, but only found a very brief discussion on this, and thought that strange. Did I miss something? I'm trying to figure out how you'd diagnose a curb, and then what the course of action would be if a) the horse is lame, and b) if the horse isn't lame. Or is the very definition of a new curb a lame horse? Thanks Dr. O!

Hello Jordana,
No you are right, we have had very few discussions on this and I have only seen two acute curbs in twenty years. I beleive this was a more common problem of horses that pulled things. Also kicking backward and hitting the lower back region of the hock could cause it. However I think we need to cover this. I will see if I can put together a little time today to research and write up something.

I am unable to access the topic of Muscoskeletal Problems of the Legs under Lameness. I am interested in learning more about curbs, diagnosis, and treatment, including how much time off?

Thanks for your help!

Hello Rochelle,
WE reorganized that whole section about 2 weeks ago and if you have the topic "Muscoskeletal Problem" still showing up under lameness then you have a old page cached in your browser. You should refresh that lameness page next time you are on it and should check your browser settings and change it so that it checks for changes each time you access a link.

Though the Lameness topic is being reorganized all of the past articles are still there and while they are being updated a lot of new ones are being added. Curb is located at Equine Diseases: Lameness: Diseases of the Hock: Curb or Curby Hocks: Tarsal Plantar Desmitis in Horses. You can just click on the title of the article in the navigation bar at the top of this page to get to it quickly.
