McPhail Equine Performance Center


The McPhail Chair was created for research in all aspects of the relationship between veterinary medicine and dressage performance, with special emphasis on prevention and treatment of lameness problems. The goal of the chair is to perform scientific investigations which directly benefit the sport of dressage. The Center holds links to the current research work being done at the McPhail Lab. These links include research projects such as joint movements and powers in normal gait; kinematic and kinetic evaluation of dressage gaits; rider effects; center of mass; and lameness evaluation.
