Control of flexibility, mobility and stability of the back have been widely investigated in horses. These concepts are integral to the equine core, which includes the body axis (spine and its associated soft tissues like ligaments and muscles from the cervical region to the pelvis) and extrinsic muscles of the limbs. The equine core is essential for maintaining body posture and for providing suppleness in the generation of locomotor forces.
