The Anatomy and Physiology of Equine Locomotion

We all want our horses to be able to perform to the best of their
ability and we know that an effective training regime has many
facets. The horse must be worked correctly, fed a balanced ration,
mentally and physically healthy and well looked after. This book
examines a further aspect of the horse?s performance: it is
designed to help all horse owners and riders to understand how a
horse moves and how its anatomy helps, or hinders, the
horse?s athletic ability.




First, the book uses sequences of photographs and detailed
anatomical drawings to show the systems of support and movement at
each phase of each of the horse?s gaits. The walk, trot,
canter, gallop and jump are all examined, and the effect of the
rider on the horse evaluated so that the rider can take appropriate
action to avoid hindering the horse. Tips are provided throughout
on ways in which the horse?s life can be made easier, such as
saddle fitting, warming up and cooling down procedures.
