These hands-on day courses offer an insight into the anatomy of the horse and provide a rare and invaluable opportunity to look at the structures we influence by training and therapy. The Biomechanics of sacroiliac joint pdf Dissection Workshop will focus on joint mechanics from the poll to the tail.

Gillian will lead a dissection focussing on cervical joint and TMJ movement and the musculature of the head, neck, poll and jaw areas including the connections to the tongue. Understanding this anatomy helps to explain about neck positions and outline. Gillian will lead a dissection focussing on the muscles, tendons and ligaments mainly above the knee and hock. The forelimb dissection will include scapula, the stay apparatus of the forelimb and some of the thoracic sling muscles. Kirsty will lead dissections of limbs below the knee and hock, focussing on the mechanics, loading and injury of the tendons and ligaments of the lower limb and inner structures of the hoof. Certificates of Participation suitable for CPD will be issued. Disposable gloves, lab coats and safety equipment will be provided.

Throughout this dissection there is emphasis on how knowledge of all the structures we identify can be applied to therapy, riding, training and assessment of horses. I would recommend this as a great refresher and at the same time new insight for any vet who spends a lot of time looking at horses moving.
