Abstract

In movement analysis of the horse, large errors result from movements of the skin with respect to the underlying bones. A generally applicable, two-dimensional, method for correction of these skin-movement errors in kinematic data has been developed. It was tested on a kinematic analysis of the hindlimb in a walking pony. The results indicate that without correction for skin-movement errors, misreadings of up to 15 degrees in the knee angle and 30% in the moment arm of the gastrocnemius muscle can be expected.
