Lecture Description

This lecture looks at how positioning of the horse’s head and neck influences back position, outline, movement, performance, comfort, welfare and way of going. 


It studies the anatomy and location of the cervical vertebrae, spinal cord, cervical nerves, muscles, fascia and ligaments within the neck and explains how these structures have an enormous anatomical and biomechanical influence on ‘How the Horse Moves’. 


With clear explanations and a wealth of video clips illustrating the advantages of an ideal head and neck position as well as the constraints and drawbacks of a less than ideal position, this webinar provides much food for thought.
