New Equine Fact Sheets Available on now offers additional Fact Sheets on topics our readers have indicated are important to them based on searched terms, reader views on that topic, surveys/polls, and personal communications.

Following are the newest Fact Sheets now available on

Each Fact Sheet will:

  • Give an overview of a specific disease, condition, anatomy/physiology topic, or topic related to horses and their management;
  • Be written by a veterinarian and reviewed by an expert to ensure accurate information;
  • Be presented in a format you can download and save to your own computer, print and share, or email to a friend.

After reviewing a Fact Sheet you can look through our Article Library of more than 13,700 articles to find more in-depth information on that topic, or perhaps even seek another Fact Sheet on a related topic.

Each Fact Sheet contains editorial content generated by The Horse staff and freelance veterinary writers, and each will be brought to you by a partner sponsor.
