Service Description

Good palpation skills require a sound knowledge of anatomy, the ability to visualize what is under the skin and an understanding of how and what to feel. Only once we can appreciate the norm, is it possible to detect subtle changes and abnormalities in the horse. Detecting changes early is key to preventing further problems. Accurate palpation enables us to deliver the best therapy techniques in each situation. On this course, we evaluate the muscle, fascia, bones, tendons, attachment points and membranes that you can actually feel on the horse and with the help of bones, skeletons, anatomy models, anatomical paintings, dissection photos and videos enable you to clearly visualize what is happening under the skin. You will also learn how to improve your sensory and intuitive palpation capability.
