with Assoc Professor Helen Davies, University of Melbourne
Helen will address
- The function of the nuchal ligament in the horse
-The relationship between spine and/or limb movements and positions and movements in the head and neck in both horse and rider.

Dr Davies is a veterinarian, teacher, and research scientist with a life-long interest in communication, posture, and movement, especially in horses and their riders.

During the last 45 years she has gradually developed and tested a range of non-invasive ways to encourage improvements in communication, posture, and function, including in individual horses and riders that have congenital or acquired disabilities or damage.

Aside from teaching functional anatomy of the locomotory and nervous systems at Melbourne University’s Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, Helen is the leader of the functional anatomy and biomechanics research group and is highly active in equine research projects primarily aimed to maintain soundness in working horses.
