Overview

Equine exercise physiology is an area that has been subject to major scientific advances over the last 30 years, largely due to the increased availability of high-speed treadmills and techniques for recording physiological function during exercise. Despite these advances, many riders and trainers are still using little more than experience and intuition to train their horses. The aim of this book is to sort the fact from the fiction for the benefit of those involved in training, managing or working with horses, and to provide an up-to-date summary of the state of play in equine exercise physiology. The book is designed to save readers time and effort trying to extract imformation in piecemeal fashion from a host of reference sources. For the first time, everything you need to know about exercising and training horses is here in one text.
