Laminitis or "founder," as it is commonly called, is one of the most debilitating types of lameness associated with the hoof. There are two general types of laminitis – mechanical and metabolic – both result in damage to the foot's laminae (the delicate tissues suspending and attaching the coffin bone to the hoof wall). Mechanical laminitis results from overload on a horse's foot, either from the horse repeatedly pounding on hard surfaces or trying to keep his weight off of one foot.
Some ways to avoid the risk of mechanical laminitis is to keep your horse's weight in check and keep him off of hard surfaces for prolonged periods of time. Consistent use of certain supplements to help strengthen and nourish your horse's hooves may help decrease the damaging effects of laminitis.
