PMID:  3877554     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In the athletic horse, an exercise test may be required to measure the adaptation of the animal to a specific training program; to modify the training program in response to the progress achieved; to investigate the reasons for failure to perform at the expected level; and to form part of an overall clinical examination of a horse with a specific disability. This article includes information on the scope and form of an exercise test, the parameters measured during the test and their interpretation, treadmill and track tests, and the clinical applications of exercise tests.
