From The Horse: When to Worry About Heart Murmurs

As the owner of a 24-year-old Thoroughbred mare with a grade-three heart murmur, I really appreciated this lecture from equine internal medicine specialist Dr. Michelle Barton. Not all murmurs are a cause for concern, but many are, especially when you’re dealing with a murmur in a horse that competes in a strenuous sport like eventing. Winter is a great time to expand our education both in and out of the saddle, and I definitely recommend bookmarking this lecture from The Horse to watch when you have an hour to spare.
