Anatomy of the Head: related to health, performance, bridle fit and design

14 July 2022

Thursday 14 Jul 2022  | 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm | The Cavalier Centre

Correct bridle fit is just as important at saddle fit and can have a huge influence on your horse’s comfort and way of going. This evening lecture will help to boost your knowledge on this subject by looking in detail at the internal and external structures of the head.

To give you a clear understanding of what lies under your horse’s skin and to help you see your horse from a new perspective, Gillian will (as usual) use her signature paintings on horses, drawings, intricate anatomy models and dissection photographs and videos to illustrate the points.

This evening lecture is perfect for riders, coaches, horse owners and bridle fitters. Covering the hyoid apparatus, temporomandibular joint and tongue as well as bones, nerves, muscles and teeth, it will demonstrate how understanding more about the anatomy of the head enables us to fit a bridle and handle the head more sensitively with the comfort and performance of the horse in mind.

The evening will count as 3 CPD points for Accredited Professional Coaches.
