The EquiAmi Training Aid (ETA) is a popular training and rehabilitation tool, however knowledge about its effect on the equine gait is lacking.

Therefore, this study aimed to determine how the ETA influences horses’ gait kinematics at walk and trot. Eight horses walked and trotted in-hand with and without the ETA.
