Grass can trigger laminitis in horses that have an underlying endocrinopathic disorder, either Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) alone, or EMS with PPID (formerly called Cushing's disease).  Grass can contain quite a lot of sugar, and when horses with EMS (or EMS plus PPID) eat sugar, their insulin levels rise, and this can cause laminitis.

In these horses, it is possible that the stress of moving may exacerbate the risk of laminitis - although this is not proven to my knowledge.

Do you have a horse that has got or has had laminitis?

Here are some articles that should help you to understand how to identify laminitis, what causes it and how to deal with it.
