Crookedness has a negative effect on a horse's health, performance and behaviour. Thanks to a system of straightness training devised by the authors, the horse's basic way of going can be corrected in a short time. This book describes the process of correcting crookedness, and includes work both on the lunge and under saddle.

Teaching both ground and in-saddle schooling techniques, this guide explains a revolutionary holistic system for straightening horses' bodies. Poor performance, bad behavior, and a decline in physical well-being all result from ingrained crookedness, which accounts for 95 percent of all movement problems in both pleasure and sport horses. Exploring a variety of issues—including where crookedness comes from; the basic anatomy and physiology of the moving horse; how incorrect training affects the health, strength, and temperament of the horse—this guide's complete training program will help riders and their horses achieve true straightness.

Based on decades of practical experience, as well as classic horsemanship theory, this book will teach anyone (from novices to experienced riders) the essentials of a horse's structure, natural balance and way of moving. Horses may be born to move but not all move equally well, and how a horse moves has an impact on how you ride. Susan Harris, with over 300 colour drawings, illustrates exactly how horses move, and common movement problems, how a rider in the saddle can affect movement and can help anyone to become a more accomplished rider (and helps the horse's health). All horses-whether a dressage horse or a hunter-have the same anatomy, locomotion and nature. Understanding horse movement makes training, and riding, simpler and less frustrating for both horse and rider, as well as helping the health of the horse. Horse Gaits is an exhaustive guide to: Find out how balance and conformation affect movement. View flexion, bending and lateral movements. See the impact of shoeing and riding on movement. Discover practical tips to improve your horse's movement. Illustrated with 300 colour drawings that show exactly how horses move, illustrating movements common to all horses and pinpointing movement problems. Everything a rider needs to become better and more accomplished. Focuses on what is common and natural to all breeds of horses. Horse Gaits appeals to everyone involved with horses from riders, trainers and, even, competition judges.

Anatomy, particularly functional anatomy, is a vital and dynamic subject, an appreciation of which leads not only to superior husbandry and welfare, but also to a better understanding of the anatomical challenges associated with riding, training, overtraining, injury and rehabilitation. Using Alexa McKenna's fabulous illustrations, this book shows the correlation of the skeleton, muscular system and locomotion, providing a clear insight into the functional and dysfunctional horse. It also addresses the largely misunderstood concept of 'perfect conformation' and looks at the effect on function of the rider and tack, using cutting-edge diagnostic techniques such as thermal imaging and gait analysis. Again with the emphasis on the visual, readers will be able to appreciate how muscles function in differing athletic disciplines by analysing the heat generated in musculoskeletal structures after exercise. This will also highlight the importance of post-competition recovery. The book concludes with a range of useful techniques to improve the function of any horse, including stretches, taping, wrapping and other proprioceptive techniques to increase balance, flexibility, awareness and posture.

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.
