Biomechanics: Understanding Equine Movement to Realize Your Horse’s Potential

Details:

The 2 ½ day in-depth lecture series explains healthy movement to provide the learner with the opportunity to develop their eye so they can see healthy and unhealthy postures.

To strengthen and enhance equine well-being, it is important to ride and exercise horses in healthy postures.
