By bringing two dimensional imagery into a three dimensional arena this excellent one day event, with two highly renowned farriers, will help you have a deeper understanding of the functional anatomy of the horses limb.
Course delivery -A choice of tickets are available:
Course content – The event will support your knowledge gained from text books, transporting into a practical and tangible understanding of how structures and the mechanics work and how this can impact your decisions made in everyday farriery.
Learning of anatomy makes so much more sense when you can actually locate individual structures of the equine limb and locomotor system In-Vivo gives a unique insght into how they work.
If getting hands on, the day will consist of individual tasks will be allocated. You will be assisted and helped to locate and transpose those structures onto the live horse through the medium of paint.
Once the structures are exposed watch how the internal structures work in relation to the horses dynamic movements by observation and live assessment.
To further your understanding and in preperation for oral examination and testing tutors will demonstrate using the live horse correct veterinary nomenclature and planes of referance
In order for the hands on attendees to create some fantastic anatomical images to use, for future presentations of there own photography and videography will be permitted..
Tutors will highlight key physiological concepts, such as the stay and recipricol apparatus, and which anatomical structures are involved.
You are encouraged to register your CPD points.
Lunch and refreshments included.
