The Royal Veterinary College are looking for UK-based horses and ponies for our research study into 'tying-up'. Taking part involves supply of hair samples (for DNA profiling) and questionnaire completion. We need:
* Warmblood horses and fully registered Connemara ponies over the age of 8 with no history of tying-up or other muscle-related diseases.
* Breeds as above, that have tied-up with exercise, at least twice – confirmed by blood testing by a vet.
