Equine Anatomy Short Course
Just mentioning Anatomy & Physiology will give most students overwhelming feelings of trepidation and anxiety. Let’s face it. It can be complex and intimidating. But here at SAGA Equine, we introduce it in a way that seems commonplace and natural.
The names of anatomical structures and directional terms don’t overwhelm and confuse our students because they’re used conversationally to develop familiarity and frequently to build your comfort with them. By the end of the course you’ll be able to converse easily with your vet and explain “exactly” what might concern you about your horse’s health. Granted, every course requires effort on the part of the student to develop proficiency but this course will give you a serious head start.
Over six hours of lecture will cover the skeletal system, the muscular system, fascia, tendons, ligaments, the nervous system, and the lymphatic system.
This is a great course for veterinary technician students to become familiar with equine anatomy and a huge boost to understanding massage for horse owners. Knowing where the muscles are and how they relate is PRICELESS!
