Sports Medicine

New Bolton Center is one of the world leaders in equine sports medicine. Our multidisciplinary team of board-certified internists, surgeons and sports medicine and rehabilitation specialists, in partnership with an internationally renowned farrier and specialized sports medicine and imaging technicians, evaluate and treat the equine athlete.


Our Equine Performance Clinic specializes in:

  • Clinical evaluation of lameness
  • Rehabilitation of horses following an injury
  • Purchase examinations
  • Poor performance examinations

We evaluate equine performance in the newly constructed Equine Performance Evaluation Facility, a state-of-the-art indoor facility. For comprehensive evaluation while a horse is exercising, we use a Jeffords high-speed treadmill.

Determination of the cause of an abnormal upper respiratory noise associated with poor performance may be difficult to diagnose during routine examination. Comprehensive evaluation of the horse while exercising on the high speed treadmill facilitates dynamic analysis of multiple body systems.
