Are you asking what a horse has to do to injury their suspensory or are you asking what actually happens to the suspensory when it is strained/sprained?

Strains can occur in the branches, at the point of branching (bifurcation), or in the middle or at the top of the suspensory ligament.

Branch strains result from the medial (inward) or lateral (outward) twisting of the lower limb that occurs when a horse lands on uneven ground or an improperly leveled shoe.
