This course is ideal for qualified therapists from all disciplines wishing to revise techniques or explore new ones to add to their toolbox as well as horse owners, riders and trainers who want to learn more. It is a mix of theory, practical demonstrations and small group hands on practical sessions. It also provides the opportunity to network, share information and discuss interesting or challenging horses with others in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Whether you’re fascinated by the equine skeleton or need to improve your knowledge of anatomy then this course is for you. Learn all about the bones and anatomical models and investigate how the skeleton is put together. Then apply this knowledge to how the horse moves and discover how it can help you manage, train, and where appropriate rehabilitate horses effectively.
We will look at:-

The position, function, relevance and far-reaching effect of the hyoid apparatus
Structures of the head including the TMJ
How the atlas joins on to the skull and how the atlas and axis influence head position
