Dostupné na objednávku.
Examine the anatomy of a horse from an entirely different perspective with this intriguing and original explanation of the 11 internal body systems painted on the outside to explain everything on the inside. Gillian Higgins turns her trademark technique of painting internal diagrams directly onto live horses to show how all the systems work together to affect performance and reduce the risk of injury.
Divided into 12 chapters, it clearly explains the importance, relevance and interaction between each of the anatomical systems. Visually appealing, original and easily understandable, Horse Anatomy for Performance explains how anatomy influences the way we manage, ride and train our horses. “Finally a book where you can learn how your horse ticks – inside out – and it is easy to understand and fun to read. A must for every serious equestrian” -Dr. W. Bechtolsheimer
