Soft tissue injuries in horses can range from ligament strains and bowed tendons to core lesions and marginal tears. Veterinarians often need advanced imaging tools, such as ultrasound and MRI, to diagnose these injuries that can be tricky to heal. Because they can happen in any horse—from the elite show jumper to the retired pasture pony—it’s important to recognize their clinical signs and set realistic expectations for diagnosis and management.

To help horse owners better understand soft tissue injuries of all types, Butterfly Network has partnered with for Soft Tissue Injury Awareness Week, starting Nov. 21, 2022.

Look for soft tissue injury content all week on, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
