Slab Sided


Slab Sided refers to a narrow ribbed horse

Horses with slab sided ribs tend to have less developed abdominal muscles and less stamina

They also have a longer, weaker loin, and can not carry as much weight

Equestrian sport and activity is full of odd sounding terms and definitions which is why we decided to put together a comprehensive index of known equine terms, most are British , some are American and a few are specific to Europe

We hope you find our A-Z Index of Equestrian Terms useful
