Typically the horsemanship test includes diagrams of the bone and soft tissue structures in the lower leg and a hoof diagram.  Below is a diagram to label as well as some sample questions that might be asked about the structures.  The diagrams and questions are intended to show you the types of questions that might be asked and encourage learning about other injuries and diseases that may affect your horse and how they would be attended to or treated.

1. What does it mean if a horse “pulls a suspensory”? 

2. What is a club foot and what surgery is used to treat it?

3. What is a bandage bow?
