Is your horse fit?

Do you know his strengths and weaknesses?

Learn to evaluate the fitness of any horse – in the stable and in the saddle!

Learn to evaluate the fitness of any horse – in the stable and in the saddle. This guide helps horse owners, riders, and trainers at all levels learn how to assess any horse’s fitness, strengths, and weakness over a 25 point check-up routine. If you’re buying a horse, this will help you pre-assess prospects before getting the complete veterinary examination. If you own a horse, these techniques will help you better understand your horse’s aptitudes, customize a training program, identify signs of strain, and provide better care for your horse.

With step-by-step instructions and almost 200 photos and drawings showing the proper positioning and approach for each technique, you will learn:

  • Hand palpation skills, several basic massage movements, and simple stretching exercises
  • A Riding Evaluation Program (REP) that helps you identify abnormalities in gaits, tight muscle groups or sore joints, and more
  • A Palpation Evaluation Program (PEP) in which you use your fingertips to pinpoint problems along a 25 point check-up routine.
  • How to perform an assessment of the horse’s musculoskeletal system, with twenty-five points on each side

Fitness Evaluation of the Horse teaches you to evaluate the soundness and fitness of a horse in a hands-on manner so that you can fine tune your training program, improve your performance, and enhance your relationship with your horse.
