Equine Exercise Physiology provides the most up-to-date, in-depth coverage of the basic sciences required for an understanding of the physiology of the equine athlete. This book provides a thorough grounding in the basic physiology of each body system and in particular the responses of each body system to exercise and training. It is the ideal resource for those interested in equine exercise physiology: undergraduate and post-graduate students in exercise science, comparative physiology, biology and veterinary science; veterinary students; horse trainers and owners of sport horses; journalists writing in equine specialty magazines; and interested lay persons. Topics include: the musculoskeletal system and physiology; tendon, ligament and joint physiology; the biomechanics of locomotion; respiratory, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems; metabolism and nutritional management; thermoregulation; hematology and immunology Written by the top experts currently working in the area of equine exercise physiology Designed for those seeking comprehensive information in a digestible format about the basic science of equine exercise physiology, rather than the clinical aspects Over 250 high quality illustrations that amplify and illustrate important points Information available in a readily accessible format.

Equine exercise physiology is an area that has been subject tomajor scientific advances over the last 30 years, largely due tothe increased availability of high-speed treadmills and techniquesfor recording physiological function during exercise. Despite thescientific advances, many riders and trainers are still usinglittle more than experience and intuition to train their horses. The aim of this book is to sort the fact from the fiction forthe benefit of those involved in training, managing or working withhorses, and to provide an up-to-date summary of the state of playin equine exercise physiology. Scientific theories are explainedfrom first principles, with the assumption that the reader has noprevious scientific background. The book is designed to savecompetitors and trainers a lot of time and effort trying to extractinformation in piecemeal fashion from a host of reference sources.For the first time, everything you need to know about exercisingand training horses is here in one text.
