Overview

Equine Science provides – in one book – all the essential scientific knowledge students require.

Describing the structure and function of the various body systems and clearly explaining the scientific rationale behind modern horse husbandry practices, this book has been written specifically for students on National and Higher Diploma courses and equine studies degree programmes, Advanced National Certificate and BHS Stage IV.

The second edition has been revised to reflect the changes in the student curriculum, and the book includes two new chapters on the cell and genetics.
