When you step back to look at a horse or when you watch a horse move, do you ever wonder what you should be watching to objectively evaluate conformation, gaits, and asymmetry? Do you know the common conformation faults and possible consequences of various defects? Do find yourself contemplating on how the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bone produce movement? Can you name the footfalls of the common gaits? Even if you have some insight to a few of the questions, the progressive horse person can always use more.

Dr. Carrie Schlachter, veterinarian medical director of Circle Oak Equine in Petaluma, CA lead you through this valuable information in this 4-day course which can help whether you are an owner, trainer, competitor, equine health care practitioner or farrier.
