From Top Finishes at NSBA and APHA World- Journey Back to Respiratory Health For 2-Year-Old Show Horse

This is a relatively common cause of respiratory problems in performance horses. It involves the triangular-shaped piece of soft cartilage, the epiglottis, that normally flips up to protect the airway when swallowing.

With dorsal displacement, the soft palate displaces upward, obstructing the trachea and limiting air intake.
