Anatomy Exhibition

Study and get hands on with a variety of anatomical specimens, models, resources and drawings on display.

The skeletal specimens are from a variety of ponies and, with array of anatomical anomalies they demonstrate the fact that there is rarely a textbook skeleton! With extra ribs, too many or too few vertebra, growth plates, and distorted hooves there is much to be learnt!
