...Zoe T. Self Davies; Andrew J. Spence; Alan M. Wilson ABSTRACT The horse has evolved to gallop economically at high speed. Limb force increases with speed but direct measures of limb ground reaction forces (GRFs) at gallop are sparse. This study reports GRFs for multiple limbs, using force plates...

.... This research suggests that breed-specific growth rates influence the maturation of the neural networks generating chewing rhythm, which may be altered because of changes in jaw mass during early postnatal growth. Here, we explored the intraspecific scaling of CCD within a sample of adult horses ranging from...

..., thoroughbred horses and elite human athletes. In each case, an absolute speed limit is definable, and the current record approaches that predicted maximum. While all such extrapolations must be used cautiously, these data suggest that there are limits to the ability of either natural or artificial selection...

This study measured foot-on and foot-off times from galloping horses using a previously validated system of limb-mounted accelerometers and a global positioning system data logger. A detailed track survey provided...

We predict that, without any factor to compensate for size differences, detectable deviations from dynamically similar locomotion would occur...

Based on previous related research, we hypothesized that there would be a shift in forces to the hindlimb. The present study measured the force produced by the fore- and hindlimbs of horses while trotting...

One study concluded that the transition was triggered by metabolic economy. The second study found that it was not metabolic factors...

If preferred speed is determined by energetic economy (cost of transport, C T ), then shifts in preferred speed should produce shifts in C T . To test this hypothesis, preferred speeds were measured in trotting horses...
