Equine Biomechanics and Anatomy expert, and Founder of Horses Inside Out, Gillian Higgins, will run three exclusive webinars titled ‘Understanding and Assessing Your Horse’s Movement’ in February, March and April this year.
Understanding how the horse works improves performance and this series of three live webinars will help anyone with an interest in horses understand more about the basic paces of walk, trot and canter.
Each webinar is presented by Gillian, who is also a BHS Senior Coach. Using high-definition slow motion videos with Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses, the biomechanics of each of the paces will be studied in detail.
Gillian will also suggest techniques and exercises to improve each of the gaits and give you the tools to accurately assess the walk, trot and canter.
The calendar of webinars include:
The Biomechanics of Walk Wednesday 1st February 2023 at 7.30pm (GMT)
Walk is a superb exercise for warm up, rehabilitation and strengthening as well as correcting straightness issues.
The Biomechanics of Trot Wednesday 1st March 2023 at 7.30pm (GMT) Trot is a symmetrical gait, which makes it great for assessing soundness.
The Biomechanics of Canter Wednesday 5th April 20237.30pm (BST)
As a forward and asymmetrical gait canter is effective at mobilising the back and warming up your horse.
Price £10 each includes Q&A, certificate of participation, CPD and 7-day access to recording after the live webinar
