Fitness in the Horse

Description

A horse's physical fitness and condition are central to his ability to perform well and to fulfill the considerable demands that are frequently made of him. While these demands are most apparent at the higher levels of competition, the horse's fitness is not a subject that should concern only the competitive rider or trainer; it is a matter for all horse owners, regardless of whether the horse is a top-level event-er or a child's first pony. This book explains what fitness is, how it affects general health, and how to achieve it for your own horse.
Topics include: muscles, movement, and stress; the respiratory system; modern methods of increasing fitness; monitoring and maintaining fitness; and illness and injury.
