- Myofascial trigger points are common in the transverse and posterior pectoral muscles.

- Horses with an owner-reported history of girth-aversion behaviour had more reactive myofascial trigger points on palpation.

- Knowledge of the presence and location of myofascial trigger points will assist in the development of prevention and management strategies.
