3.2.1 Management

It is helpful to find out the duration of ownership, or the time during which the horse has been in the present training establishment. If an animal has only recently been acquired, important details about the animal's previous history may not be known and only a limited amount of performance record data may be available.

The previous, current and prospective use of the animal are very important factors to establish. This may affect whether mild disease has been clinically evident, and the significance of the condition for future use.
