The idea of the research was following the schedule of morbidity on individual diseases of limbs structures of locomotion apparatus in two-years old thoroughbred horses being in racing training. Investigative material presented 850 persons. Each horse was monitoring from the half of December of the year in which it has arrived on a race track, to the end of next calendar year. Ascertain, that injuries of locomotion apparatus concerned over 60% of animals in researched population. Most frequently, disease concerned on soft structures of the limbs locomotion apparatus, but particularly, muscles, tendons and ligaments. In the midst of tendonitis, most often ascertained inflammations of interosseous muscles. In main measure injuries in thoracic limb, especially on the left part were observed.
