A compelling documentary has been released today based on groundbreaking work on signs of pain in the ridden horse. The 24 Behaviors of the Ridden Horse in Pain – Shifting the Paradigm of How We See Lameness has been produced by US-based Padma Video in association with the Train With Trust Project. The 35-minute film features world-renowned expert in equine orthopaedics, Dr. Sue Dyson, and her research on how ‘bad’ horse behaviour can actually be an early indicator of pain.

Keep an eye out for my next book, ‘Recognising Pain in Ridden Horses: Performance, Partnership and Potential’, co-authored with Dr Sue Dyson, published by J A Allen, due 2023. Sign up at to be kept up to date with new information as it comes available.
