We all want our horses to be able to perform to the best of theirability and we know that an effective training regime has manyfacets. The horse must be worked correctly, fed a balanced ration,mentally and physically healthy and well looked after. This bookexamines a further aspect of the horse’s performance: it isdesigned to help all horse owners and riders to understand how ahorse moves and how its anatomy helps, or hinders, thehorse’s athletic ability. First, the book uses sequences of photographs and detailedanatomical drawings to show the systems of support and movement ateach phase of each of the horse’s gaits. The walk, trot,canter, gallop and jump are all examined, and the effect of therider on the horse evaluated so that the rider can take appropriateaction to avoid hindering the horse. Tips are provided throughouton ways in which the horse’s life can be made easier, such assaddle fitting, warming up and cooling down procedures.

Eadweard Muybridge

Best known for his contribution to the development of the motion picture, Eadweard Muybridge (1830–1904) was a pioneering photographer during his lifetime. Alongside his remarkable photographic achievements, his personal life was riddled with melodrama—including a near-fatal stagecoach accident and a betrayal by his wife that ended with Muybridge being tried for the murder of her lover. Marta Braun’s revealing biography traces the sensational events of Muybridge’s life and his personal reinventions as artist, photographer, researcher, and showman. In the 1870s, Muybridge’s photography skills were enlisted by Leland Stanford, a racehorse breeder who later founded Stanford University, to prove the “unsupported motion controversy”—the theory that during a horse’s stride, there was a moment when all four of its legs left the ground. The resulting collection of motion studies, as Braun explains, inspired Muybridge to take photography beyond landscapes to the realm of science. He went on to invent the zoopraxiscope, which captures movement too quick for the human eye to record. Most importantly, simulating motion through a series of stills, his pioneering use of sequence photography served as a forerunner to the introduction of cinematography in the 1890s. This illuminating study examines a man whose influence has resounded through generations. In Eadweard Muybridge, Braun firmly establishes Muybridge’s central contributions to the history of art, science, photography, and motion pictures.

Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.

Ja, Sie können Ihren Augen trauen! GALOPP! ist eine Welt-Premiere. Jede Seite ist ein neues Wunder. Faszinierend für Jung und Alt Jeder kann den Effekt sehen und genießen. Deutsche Fassung mit lustigen Reimen »Ooh!« »Aah!!« »Wow!!!«. So oder ähnlich sind überall in der ganzen Welt die Reaktionen der Menschen, die zum ersten Mal ein Scanimation®-Bild sehen. Nur mit graphischen Mitteln werden bewegte Bilder von Tieren erzeugt. Sie werden beliebig oft und beliebig schnell in eine Bewegung versetzt, die der natürlichen recht nahe kommt. Beim Aufklappen setzen sich die Tiere in Bewegung, langsam, schnell, immer wieder: ein Pferd galoppiert, ein Hahn stolziert, ein Hund rennt, eine Katze springt, ein Adler schwebt, ein Affe hangelt, ein Schmetterling flattert, eine Schildkröte flitzt durchs Wasser. Wie funktioniert Scanimation®? Rufus Butler Seder hat mit Scanimation® eine 6-Phasen-Animation gestaltet, mit der die Bewegungen beinahe so glatt wie in der Wirklichkeit ablaufen. Das ist noch niemandem vor ihm gelungen. Wackelbilder oder Hologramme arbeiten nur mit einer 2-Phasen-Animation. Die einzige irgendwie vergleichbare Sensation im Buchmarkt waren die »Das magische Auge«-Bücher im Jahre 1994. Aber bei weitem nicht allen Personen gelang es, die Bilder so zu fokussieren, dass sich bei ihnen der Effekt einstellte. Solche Beschränkungen gibt es bei GALOPP! nicht ═ jeder kann die Bewegung sehen. Seders Verfahren ist patentiert und damit weltweit vor Nachahmung geschützt.

The Horse in Action

The Walk, Trot, Canter, Gallop, and Jump, Illustrated

Author: Henry Wynmalen,Michael Lyne

For thousands of years, man's artistic efforts to depict the rapid movements executed by horses were largely unsuccessful. Even the camera's eye in nineteenth-century films frequently failed to record a true picture accurately. Of immense interest to equestrian artists, the subject of a horse's precise rhythm was of special concern to students of advanced horsemanship and instructors. Henry Wynmalen, a noted equestrian authority, and illustrator Michael Lyne were among the first to define and depict clearly the sequence of maneuvers made by the horse in its varied gaits. This important study, profusely illustrated with 219 amazing, accurately rendered drawings, documents equine movement in chapters covering the walk, trot, canter, gallop, jump, and racing. A valuable resource for artists and anatomists, The Horse in Action will be of use to anyone interested in the dynamics of animal motion.

This book aims to show how the horse’s muscles work and explains how this knowledge can be put to good use in riding, whether in competition or for recreation. Using her own careful anatomical drawings, Sara Wyche studies the skeleton, the action of the muscles, and the role of the nervous system before applying this information to various riding situations. The demands placed on the horse’s systems in dressage, jumping, eventing, racing, and even polo are all examined, with advice on how good riding practice can help avoid problems. With the knowledge of the horse’s anatomy gained in this book, the rider will better understand what is being asked of the horse, and how to achieve it with sympathetic riding and horse care, making this an essential manual for all riders.

Animals in Film

ISBN: 1861895720

Category: Performing Arts

From Salvador Dalí to Walt Disney, animals have been a constant yet little-considered presence in film. Indeed, it may come as a surprise to learn that animals were a central inspiration to the development of moving pictures themselves. In Animals in Film, Jonathan Burt points out that the mobility of animals presented technical and conceptual challenges to early film-makers, the solutions of which were an important factor in advancing photographic technology, accelerating the speed of both film and camera. The early filming of animals also marked one of the most significant and far-reaching changes in the history of animal representation, and has largely determined the way animals have been visualized in the twentieth century. Burt looks at the extraordinary relation-ship between animals, cinema and photography (including the pioneering work of Eadweard Muybridge and Jules-Etienne Marey) and the technological developments and challenges posed by the animal as a specific kind of moving object. Animals in Film is a shrewd account of the politics of animals in cinema, of how movies and video have developed as weapons for animal rights activists, and of the roles that animals have played in film, from the avant-garde to Hollywood.
