Some fifty-eight million horses worldwide constitute the recreational and professional
population that can be affected by conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendinitis,
cartilage damage and other lesions.
There is no regenerative therapy approved in the Americas, Asia, Australasia or Africa to resolve lameness in animals, a condition that reportedly affects some one-third
of the equine population.
Horse riding is a widely-adopted professional as well as amateur activity internationally.
The high-profile, competitive equine environment is vast, embracing horseracing, show jumping, dressage, eventing, rodeo, and barrel racing. Commercial highlights include the Olympics, the Pan-American Games, the Canadian and US Triple Crowns, the Epsom Derby, the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping and The Longines Global Champions Tour.
