Hi again,

In a bid to keep learning I'm currently doing my best to study equine biomechanics. I was just wondering if anyone has any websites or books that you can recommend?

Andy

Hey Andy, I'm studying Equine Biomechanics at the Open College Of Equine Studies. I can't recommend the the Heuschmann site enough, and his DVD If Horses Could Speak, is excelent, s is the book that goes with the film, Tug Of War, Modern versus Classical Dressage. To get yourself familiarised with the horses anatomy I totaly recommend The Horse Anatomy Work Book, by Maggie Raynor, you cn get it quite reasonable on Amazon.

It's a fasinating subject which makes you veiw the horse in a completly different way.

Yay!

And here's another Heuschmann fan. Plain spoken and uncomplicated and backed by scientific research.

Let's put an end to Rollcur forever.
