Activate Your Horse’s Core – Authors: Drs Narelle C. Stubbs and Hilary M. Clayton

equicoreconceptslogo

Equicore Concepts™ has been developed from a multidisciplinary approach of therapists, veterinarians, riders and trainers, by adapting and refining human sports medicine, physiotherapeutic, rehabilitation and performance enhancement principles to the horse. These principles revolve around a “motor control approach” which affects how a horse moves and thus performs. The primary concept is based on how to ‘Activate Your Horse’s Core’ (and more!).

Clinical Anatomy of the Horse – New and in preparation
Animal Physiotherapy Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation of Animals

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 visualized 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
Animal Physiotherapy Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation of Animals ISBN #978-1-4051-3195-7

 Saddle Fitting

JRD Saddles – Custom fitting to the horse

newlogo.black.web
JRD Saddles – Custom Saddles made to fit. The Make-to-Measure Dressage saddles are the perfect choice for a petite rider with a wide horse who wants to be able to sit close to the horse without the discomfort of a wide seat. This saddle is excellent for a rider who needs to train the hip angle to loosen and stretch down. It is well suited to horses with large shoulders or trapezious muscles, and big moving horses. Or it is simply for a person who desires a saddle  which is 100% made to his or her measurements as well as the horse’s measurements.
We start by taking  extensive measurements of the rider; such as the pelvis curvature, hip angle, leg length and pelvis width and then compare that to the horse’s measurements before designing the final pattern. Once the pattern for the horse and rider is complete , we start hand crafting the saddle to the patterns.
