Formed in the United States, under the direction of Dr. Jean-Marie Denoix, The International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP) will focus on the problem of lameness in the equine athlete. The goal of ISELP is to provide contemporary knowledge and techniques in the continually evolving field of equine locomotor analysis to better prepare the equine clinician to understand and manage lameness conditions in the equine athlete.
"Continuing education of equine practitioners for a better management of patients"
Founded in 2006, ISELP is rapidly growing and currently has members on all five continents.
