Caudal part - Pars caudalis

Description

In horses, the greater trochanter is divided into a cranial part (with a prominent crest (crest of the great trochanter; crista trochanterica lateralis) on the lateral aspect for the insertion of accessory gluteal muscle) and a caudal part. The trochanteric notch separates these the lateral and caudal parts of greater trochanter.
