Resumen

The prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes in 65 horses at Las Criollas, La Belén Ranch, from the National Enterprise for Wildlife Protection, in the province of Camagüey, Cuba, was determined. Parascaris equorumand Oxyu-ris equi´s spreading ways were identified by floating helminth-ovoscopic analysis. The rest of the species were clas-sified according to the morphological characteristics of previously cultured larvae. The formula referred by Vaklas Kouba to achieve temporary prevalence of parasitic nematodes was used in the study. The type with the highest prevalence found was Cyathostomas; the least was Parascaris equoromand Strongylus vulgaris. Other nematodes found were Strongylus edentatus, Gyalocephalus capitatus, Poteriostomumsp. Oesophagodontus robustus, Triodontophorussp, Trichostrongylus axeiand Strongyloide westeri.
