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.

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.

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.

The first two volumes in the series complement each other. One focuses on how horses behave and learn (ethology) while the other addresses how they move (biomechanics). Understanding and establishing cross species communication is the basis for all the work in the first book. The second book covers the next step in schooling the horse, using lungeing to develop the horse’s physical strength and coordination so they can carry us around without injuring themselves. Integrating the over looked and truly remarkable findings from the last few decades of research into the biomechanics of the horse’s back and nervous system with the long-standing practice of lungeing develops the horse’s strength and coordination so they can carry a rider without damaging themselves. Circle walking exercises for humans helps them to understand and communicate with their horses. Keywords – Lunge, Horse Back, Hindquarters, Soft Tissue, Lungeing, Lungeing Stress, Whips, Trotter, Galloper, Lunge Equipment, Surcingle, Ground Driving, Problem Solving, Stable, Horse, Ground Training, Horsemanship, Equine, Rider, Schooling Your Horse, Horse Training

Covering the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system, Veterinary Neuroanatomy and Clinical Neurology, 4th Edition helps you diagnose the location of neurologic lesions in small animals, horses, and food animals. Practical guidelines explain how to perform neurologic examinations, interpret examination results, and formulate effective treatment plans. Descriptions of neurologic disorders are accompanied by illustrations, radiographs, and clinical case examples with corresponding online video clips depicting the actual patient described in the text.
