Description

The first edition of Equine Locomotion has established itself as the book in the equine literature that discusses all aspects of equine locomotion and gait analysis, written by an international team of editors and contributors. The new edition continues this trend and gives the reader a complete picture of the horse in motion, at the same time including many recent findings in this area. The book begins with a history of man's association with the horse and then continues to discuss with comprehensive descriptions of the present state of knowledge beginning with the initiation of gait and ending with the more scientific area of computer modeling. In the new edition, the list of contributors continues to comprise of authors who are acknowledged experts in their subject areas and includes many new illustrations. . international team of editors and contributors, with leading experts from the USA, the Netherlands, Sweden and France (all centres of excellence for the study of equine locomotion) . editors are from two of the worlds leading locomotion centres - Utrecht and Michigan . highly illustrated with nearly 500 detailed line drawings and illustrations . covers all you will ever need to know about equine locomotion, gait analysis and much more . international team of editors and contributors, with leading experts from the USA, the Netherlands, Sweden and France (all centres of excellence for the study of equine locomotion) . editors are from two of the worlds leading locomotion centres - Utrecht and Michigan . highly illustrated with nearly 500 detailed line drawings and illustrations . covers all you will ever need to know about equine locomotion, gait analysis and much more
