The Royal Veterinary College Equine Practice and Referral Hospital invite you to a lecture for all horse riders and owners on Anatomy and Physiology - An insight into what makes horses such great athletes and why they are so vulnerable to injuries.
The horse can run at fast speeds, jump high and wide and maintain moderate pace for hours, even with a rider on board, making it the ultimate universal athlete. During this evening session, Professor Weller will explain the unique anatomical features that make the horse so exceptional and at the same time so vulnerable to problems.
Come along and learn how your horse functions and why it is so prone to injuries.
Free refreshments from 7pm.
Lecture starts at 7.30pm.
Cost: £10 and tickets must be booked before midday on the day of the lecture.
