Case Study
The article describes the case of Reno, a 2-year-old Quarter Horse colt who developed a swelling just above the right knee over the extensor carpi radialis tendon. The colt who was on a hectic training schedule for cow horse futurities was not lame and not in pain and was prescribed a topical anti-inflammatory and daily bandaging. It was referred to the Colorado State University, when the swelling persisted after the competition, where tenoscopic surgery was done on the injured tendon sheath.
