16th | Horses Inside Out | Painted Horse Lecture Demo

This clinic gives a fascinating insight into equine locomotion, training & management from an anatomical perspective.

Keeping this system in optimum condition & appreciating how it functions leads to a supple, comfortable horse able to maximise his range of movement & perform at his best.
