Forelimb and Hindlimb Dissection



Get a full insight into the anatomy of a horse

This hands-on day course offers an insight into the anatomy of the horse and provide a rare and invaluable opportunity to look at the structures we influence by training and therapy.

Participants will learn about the underlying structures of the horse, including the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. They will also get the chance to examine these structures in detail, using a variety of tools and techniques. This knowledge will help participants to better understand how different training and therapy methods can impact the horse’s physical well-being and performance. In addition, the courses may cover topics such as common injuries and conditions that affect horses, and how to prevent or treat them. Overall, these courses provide a unique learning experience for anyone interested in equine health and welfare.


Understanding the anatomy and function of these areas is crucial for anyone involved in horse riding or therapy. The stay apparatus and reciprocal system, for example, are important for maintaining a horse’s balance and stability while standing or moving. The suspensory and check ligaments are responsible for supporting the horse’s limbs during movement, while the biceps catapult helps to initiate movement in the forelimbs. The sacroiliac joint ligaments and patella ligaments are important for maintaining the horse’s posture and preventing injuries, while the thoracic sling plays a crucial role in supporting the horse’s back and ribcage. By having a deep understanding of these areas, riders, coaches, and therapists can better care for their horses and help them perform at their best.

Whether you are a rider, coach or therapist, you will greatly benefit from this course, It covers areas such as:

The Stay Apparatus and Reciprocal System
