Musculoskeletal pathologies and lameness are a common problem in equine athletes. Although equine practitioners are well educated in diagnostic investigation to figure out causes of lameness, little is known about the predisposing biomechanical features of the involved anatomical structures before lameness occurs. Biomechanical dysfunction leading to aberrant gait or mechanical restriction in movement can evolve into clinical lameness. In-depth knowledge regarding the functional anatomy and segmental biomechanics is crucial to identify biomechanical stress or dysfunction and prevent lameness in the equine athlete. This essay aims to provide insight of the functional anatomy and biomechanical properties of the hind limb and pelvis with regard to lameness.
