About this title


With its fabulous anatomical illustrations, this book is for anyone seeking clarity about how horses move; why and how equine locomotion can go wrong; the latest methods of assessing movement in horses; and what to do to improve soundness and performance. For equine physiotherapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors; farriers and veterinary surgeons; horse owners, riders, competitors, trainers, and judges—and anyone who is interested in the care and welfare of the horse.

From the Inside Flap:

Anatomy is often said to be boring, but nothing could be further from the truth. Anatomy, particularly functional anatomy, is a vital and dynamic subject, an appreciation of which leads not only to superior horse management and welfare, but also to a better understanding of the anatomical challenges associated with riding, training, overtraining, injury, and rehabilitation. Using Alexa McKenna’s fabulous illustrations, this book shows the correlation of the skeleton, muscular system and locomotion, providing a clear insight into the functional and dysfunctional horse.

It addresses the largely misunderstood concept of “perfect conformation” and looks at the effect of the rider and tack on the function of the horse, using cutting-edge diagnostic techniques such as thermal imaging and gait analysis.

Again with the emphasis on the visual, readers will be able to appreciate how muscles function in differing athletic disciplines by analyzing the heat generated in musculoskeletal structures after exercise. This will also highlight the importance of post-competition recovery.

The book concludes with a range of useful techniques to improve the function of any horse, including stretches, taping, wrapping, and other proprioceptive techniques to increase balance, flexibility, awareness, and posture.
