We all want our horses to be able to perform to the best of theirability and we know that an effective training regime has manyfacets. The horse must be worked correctly, fed a balanced ration,mentally and physically healthy and well looked after. This bookexamines a further aspect of the horse’s performance: it isdesigned to help all horse owners and riders to understand how ahorse moves and how its anatomy helps, or hinders, thehorse’s athletic ability. First, the book uses sequences of photographs and detailedanatomical drawings to show the systems of support and movement ateach phase of each of the horse’s gaits. The walk, trot,canter, gallop and jump are all examined, and the effect of therider on the horse evaluated so that the rider can take appropriateaction to avoid hindering the horse. Tips are provided throughouton ways in which the horse’s life can be made easier, such assaddle fitting, warming up and cooling down procedures.

This new volume is the first photographic atlas of equine anatomy to integrate illustrations of prepared specimens with correlative images of the same structures as visualised by each of the commonly used imaging modalities; radiography, ultrasound and endoscopy. Additional images illustrate the position and orientation of these structures in the living animal, as they would most commonly be encountered, either in the course of a physical examination (for example the viscera or reproductive organs in a rectal or vaginal examination), or as they present in the prone animal, during a surgical procedure. Thus the atlas has a true utility for the practitioner as well as the student. The only atlas of anatomy that combines illustrations of gross anatomy with radiographic images, ultrasound and endoscopic views to give a complete appreciation of all the structures Preparations of cross-sectional anatomy aid interpretation of diagnostic imaging such as ultrasonography All photographs are of fresh material, or living animals, rather than preserved specimens, to demonstrate the appearance of tissues in the living animal, or at post mortem autopsy Includes annotated images to illustrate the position and orientation of structures in situ, in the living animal, as they will be encountered in carrying out a physical examination or surgical procedure Colour photographs, with correlative radiographs are selected according to clinical importance
