Standard hind legs flexion in closer look at in this way its hind legs that can be detected lameness in General fetlock joint appear discovery researchers from the test, Ireland, the Netherlands. They also receive test is discovered by the power of how if positive results of the false (indicating that the horse is inconvenient when in reality he is not), this joint tests are used.
During the bending test, veterinarians, nobbyhorse, one time stretch or leg at different bends to shrink the space. Pulled straight to horse and bent legs is out for signs of lameness veterinary monitors. Bending test is most commonly used in prepurchase and lameness examination.

He also fetlock joint and joint area soon most false-positive result in the tests like this to contribute and pointed out.
Because during the study for low-power horse researchers 250 Newton (54 lb) of Forelegs Flex 60 seconds to use. View was used in the study on each of the eight Dutch Warmbloods flexion after positive results.
According to the researchers running most veterinarians bending test uses the power of the approximately 150 Newton (32 lb), but “but in effect mechanism must not have published clear guidelines, test run and actions and test different anatomical structures have little or no research is available. ?
For these reasons, van Weeren recruiting veterinarians and owner too much emphasis on bending test prepurchase examination avoid putting: “not overvalue bending test. Buy me a rather go good horse positive bending test in the hands of one and all four limbs negative values than stiff gaited animals. ?
Shows that the results of bending test of study before the age of the horse, workload, and gender that affect positive or negative.
