The aim of this study is to identify possible structures overloaded during toe or heel elevation. For this porpouse, eight Arabian horses without clinical and thermographic evidence of musculoeskeletal abnormalities will be used. All animals will perform exercise using flat and six degrees toe or elevation shoe. Thermographic evaluations will be conducted before, immediately after exercise and 15, 60 and 120 minutes after this. The data will be analyzed by ANOVA followed by Tukey test (p <0.05).
