Whole Horse Dissection

Three day Dissection - with Sharon May-Davis.
This is a workshop not to be missed by ANYONE.. absolutely fantastic, an experience you will always remember.

Whole horse dissection; this is an exploration of one side of the horse - 
This workshop will cover:
• Basic neurology
• Musculo-skeletal system – complete half side of the horse discussing muscle; origin/s, insertion/s, function/s and relationships
As part of the journey we reveal the problems that the horse had, its individual qualities and potential restrictions within the structure. 
Including;
• Joint pathology
• Fascia
• Ligaments
• Palpation and range of motion is also investigated

On the final day the horse is turned and the joints explored as a comparative.
It looks at the differences between text book diagrams of muscle location and the reality of what is really under the skin.
