Lecture Description

This lecture on skeletal maturity looks at how youngsters, regardless of conformation or type, develop both muscularly and skeletally. 

Gillian compares skeletons with both open and closed growth plates and looks at different activities and exercises to help prepare young horses for future ridden work. Understanding skeletal maturity is key to developing a happy, healthy, posturally strong horse. 

The exercises demonstrated are useful for horses of all ages and particularly for those coming back into work after injury.
