Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.

This book presents an in-depth, qualitative exploration of the practice of horse-riding by “disabled” and “non-disabled” riders and their horses. Situated as part of an “affective turn” within human geography, creative and original use is made of poststructuralist theory to bring together animal studies and disability studies in order to decentre the human as we think about the social. Eighteen months of multi-sited performance ethnography “on the hoof” were conducted with riders recruited from local riding schools, an internet forum and three Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) groups. The study employed various methods, including diary-keeping, participant observation and video-recording of riding activities, in order to capture moments of horse-human relating. Through these methods, the embodied expressions of horses are taken seriously as demonstrative of their individual thoughts and intentions.

This book will help you to understand your feelings and give you strategies to deal with them. Christine shares with you the Three Keys to Success based on her successful Confident Rider Workshops. Exercises and case studies are included to help you move forward. “Throughout my work as a Riding Teacher I am being constantly challenged by, what seems to be, an increasing amount of pupils who lack confidence—particularly adults. In this excellent book Christine has given us useful tools to help the rider become more confident. Not only does she explain clearly the very essential tool of mental imagery her easy to follow relaxation techniques and ideas for positive goal setting set the rider on the path to once again enjoy their riding. I recommend this book not only to riders of all ages but also to those who teach riding. It will increase knowledge and understanding therefore having an impact on empathy with pupils.” Patrick Print FBHS “The one thing that can really make a difference to your success is breaking down your goal into smaller achievable steps. This book shows you how to do that along with lots of other practical solutions to improve your belief, confidence and enjoyment in riding.” Helen J Bradley Dressage Rider, Trainer and List 1 Judge
