@franjurga writes: British vet Gil Riley offers simple steps to help ward off the painful muscle condition known as azoturia, "tying up" or "Monday morning disease". If your horse has suffered from this condition, you are already aware of it. But many people are caught completely unaware when their horses develop this peculiar form of lameness and reluctance to move.
The video was created by Your Horse magazine in Britain and also mentions the condition known as PSSM, which can have recurrent azoturia as a side effect.
The video does not actually show a horse that is suffering from the condition, but you will get the idea. Keep this information in the back of your mind in case you ever see a horse in distress from tying up.
