Stringhalt STEVE: Stringhalt in a horse is a problem of the hind limbs, where they have a little bit of hyperreflexia or a noticeable hyperreflexia when they advance a limb. They tend to have almost a little bit like a Russian march. You see the Russians extend their limbs forward like this when they walk. That’s the way a horse looks when it has stringhalt. Typically it’s on one limb not both, although there have been cases where they’ve had it on both. The treatment has been in the past lots of different medications, but an extensor tendon tenectomy has worked relatively good in the past, but it’s not permanent and a lot of times it comes back. Typically we don’t really treat it, there’s not much you can do to treat it, but it tends to bother the owners more so than it does the horses.
