Anatomy of the Head: related to health, performance, bridle fit and design
Presented by Gillian Higgins - Horses Inside Out
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.
Covering the hyoid apparatus, temporomandibular joint and tongue as well as bones, nerves, muscles and teeth, this evening is perfect for riders, coaches, horse owners and bridle fitters, demonstrates 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 first part of this evening will be a video lecture and after a short break there will be a more hands on practical demonstration of how to find and feel the anatomical structures of the head.
This evening will also count as 3 x CPD points for BHS Accredited Professional Coaches.
Times: 7pm - 9pm
