Excellent horse care & management requires mastery of the basics of equine anatomy. You have the potential to know your horse better than any one else and to be his/her best advocate. Turn that potential into reality in this clinic by learning the anatomy and common conditions associated with the equine front limb, including conformation variations and common lameness issues.
In this 3 hour, "hands on" clinic we'll cover the topographic anatomy of the front limb and and how to evaluate normal and abnormal variations on a live horse. For this clinic we'll get right down to the nitty gritty dissecting cadaver specimens. Among other things, you'll learn how the appendicular skeleton supports the ligaments, tendons & muscles of the leg. We'll also spend some time evaluating hoof structure and function. Don't miss this great opportunity to really appreciate the magnificent design of the horse's primary weight bearing structures, the forelimbs.
