In this follow-up to her best-selling Understanding the Horse's Back, Sara Wyche turns her attention to the legs. Although often taken for granted, it is self-evident that healthy, strong legs are essential for successful riding, whether for leisure or in competition.
Topics covered included: the anatomy of the horse's legs; likely problems from hooves, joints and bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments; causes of lameness; advice on care and treatment including homoeopathic and alternative remedies.
Great demands are placed upon the horse's legs in any form of riding and this book will enable rider and owner to understand more about the structure and working of the legs, identify potential problems, and take steps to treat and correct them.
