Whole Horse Standing Dissections WA

July 10th – 12th
Three day Dissection – with Sharon May-Davis.
This is a workshop not to be missed by ANYONE.. absolutely fantastic, an experience you will always remember.
Whole horse dissection; this is an exploration of one side of the horse –
This workshop will cover:
• Basic neurology
• Musculo-skeletal system – complete half side of the horse discussing muscle; origin/s, insertion/s, function/s and relationships
As part of the journey we reveal the problems that the horse had, its individual qualities and potential restrictions within the structure.
• Joint pathology
• Palpation and range of motion is also investigated
On the final day the horse is turned and the joints explored as a comparative.
It looks at the differences between text book diagrams of muscle location and the reality of what is really under the skin.
Anatomy in Action
• WA & QLD 2021
A Practical look at Applied Biomechanics, Movement, Posture, Skeletal Maturity, Training, Dressage, Jumping, Position, Therapy, Saddle-fit, Assessment and Asymmetry.
This course will look at practical aspects of applied biomechanics and anatomical principles of movement related to the horse. It will take an in depth look at the structure and function of the equine body and relate it to way of going. The course is illustrated with wonderful slow motion video of painted horses showing exactly what is happening under the skin as well as live painted horses.
There will be plenty of discussion and hands on participation. The course is a mix of theory and practical observation.
It is of interest to riders, therapists, saddlers, farriers – in fact anyone who would like to appreciate the relevance of applied anatomy and biomechanics to how the horse moves.

Anatomical Painting & Pilates
Back in 2021
Led by Gillian Higgins, Sports and Remedial Therapist for Horses and Humans, this course is open to horse owners, riders and students.
The course will look at the anatomy of the muscular and skeletal system, stretching and pilates-style exercises for horses.
The first half of the course will involve learning more about the anatomy as you paint it on your horse.
The secod half will involve pilates style exercises for your horse. These are excellent ways to develop a stronger bond between horse and handler. Techniques demonstrated on these courses can be useful for physical and mental relaxation, improving performance, reducing muscle tension and stiffness, preparing for exercise or competition and reducing the risk of injury.
There will be plenty of hands on participation.
