The Authors’ Description: course on the Functional Anatomy of the Horse’s Back.

The horse’s back plays a central role in almost every aspect of equine biomechanics. The interactions between muscles of the neck, back, trunk and pelvis play a crucial role in making horses the superb athletes that they are. In this course you will learn about:

    • the various functions of the horse’s back;
    • which muscles, ligaments and fascia move and stabilise the spine;
    • how posture affects movement of the back and the horse as a whole; and
    • which muscle groups are important for sustainably carrying a rider’s weight.

The course has been compiled by Dr Marie Dittmann and Dr Isabel Imboden.
