Attended the International Symposium of Animal Musculoskeletal Practice on Friday 28th November as part of my annual trainiing requirement. Dr Hilary Clayton was the main speaker. She presented some of her research work on equine locomotion – basic principles and adaptations during lameness; biomechanics of the horse’s back and effects of rider and tack; and evidence based studies of good core strengthening exercises that can be done with horses. All very relevant information which I can make use of when treating horse’s backs. She is so interesting to listen to.
