Course Content:

This course will get you thinking about your horse from a completely different perspective. Anatomy is taught in a unique hands on approach. You will have the opportunity to use anatomical painting on the horse to learn about the skeleton. Gillian will not just talk about the names and locations of the bones but the type of movement in different areas and the implications for training, riding, posture, health, care and management. There will also be real bones and anatomical models to compare to real live horses. Once the horses are painted with the skeletons we will look at movement, posture and biomechanics and the application of this information improving performance, health and soundness. There will be lots of tips and exercises you can do with your own horse when you get home. You do not need to bring your own horse.
