Reviews

Gain an insight into how your horse's body works, and discover some tools to help reduce the chance of him picking up an injury. Author Gail Williams, a qualified veterinary physiotherapist, aims to equip you with knowledge about your horse's skeletal system so you can understand more about how injuries occur and how they can be prevented. There's a fascinating section on foot balance and gait analysis, plus some useful stretches and groundwork exercises you can use with your own horse to improve his muscle tone and range of movement, and keep him in tip-top physical shape. While you may be forgiven for thinking the topic of anatomy is quite technical, this book makes it something that everyone can understand. Horse Vet Gail Williams explains how your horse moves, and why and how it can go wrong. The wonderful illustrations by Alexa McKenna will help you understand how horses use their muscles in different disciplines, as well as the issues associated with overtraining and injury.
