Chapter 2 Horse Riding in The 21st Century
Anatomy Enlightenment Author Avis Senior
The horse was not designed to be ridden.
I have concerns that riders and handlers of varying ability are not always au-fait with the location, operation, and possible detriment of the horse’s anatomy.
I therefore offer a much-needed basic, yet informative insight into the temporomandibular joint, hyoid bone, atlas, and ribs in relation to the shoulder, nuchal and supraspinous ligaments and the latimus dorsi muscle. The signs, effects, and simple checking procedures of the one sided horse are discussed, as are the damaging effects of feeding the horse from a hay net.
Please feel free to check out the insights into my other book chapters.
