Equestrian Bio-mechanics Workshop
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Leweston Equestrian Team had a fantastic visit to Lisa and Fred Ford's South West Equine Water Treadmill centre last week and were treated to an extremely informative workshop on equine bio-mechanics by Veterinary Physiotherapist Megan Merrifield. With The help of a very colourful Roger, we now know where to find muscles such as brachiocephalicus, splenius, trapezius and latissimus dorsi!
Watching Roger flex those muscles on the water treadmill made us all appreciate the complex mechanics of a horse. Thank you to Lisa, Fred and Megan for a brilliant demonstration. The whole team came away having learnt something new.
