What are Splints (Interosseous Desmitis)?

Splints involve lesions in the connective tissue between splint and cannon bones manifesting themselves as swellings and bony enlargements on the splint bones of both fore and hind legs. In early stages enlargements may be invisible, but deep palpation often reveals painful swellings. Later, calcified boney enlargements appear and if lameness is present, it usually disappears except where enlargements impinge upon the suspensory ligaments. Splints are at best unsightly blemishes detracting from the horse’s appearance and most importantly, value. In cases, they may be the cause of clinical lameness.

Why do splints occur?

Splints are caused by trauma, concussion and strain particularly in immature horses. Incorrect balances of calcium and phosphate in feeds fed particularly to growing horses, faulty conformation and incorrect hoof length, balance and angle may also be causes of splints. It is important to remove the cause if possible.

How to help prevent splints?

(1) Avoid excessive concussion and strain especially with young horses.

(2) Regular farrier visits, hoof oil and use your hoof pick.

(3) Feed nutritionally balances grains and forage especially to young horses.
