Conditioning the Sport Horse
At all levels of Equestrian sport, competing horses rely on athletes to do what is best for their health and welfare. It is imperative for anyone involved in horse training and riding/driving to speak with their trainers, coaches and veterinarians about properly conditioning your horse competition, as collectively, you know your equine partner better than anyone. This course is set to teach the basics of Equine Conditioning.
Equines compete in a diverse range of sporting activities, each requiring specific technical skills and different levels of physical fitness. Conditioning Sport Horses is based on the Conditioning Sport Horses written by Hilary M. Clayton and aims to provide a background of scientific facts upon which to base a logical system of conditioning. The course walks you through the basic principles of conditioning, as well as cardiovascular and strength conditioning education. This course is entry-level learning into science-based equine athlete conditioning, which will be a key foundation to developing discipline-specific condition programs with courses to come!
