Getting Horses Fit: Improve Your Horse's Performance

Getting Horses Fit: Improve Your Horse's Performance

by PILLINER (Author)


How does a trainer produce the first five horses in the country's top steeplechase? Why do some event horses compete internationally year after year while other riders are for ever needing new horses? Why is it that some trainers are able to get their horses so much fitter than others? The answer lies partly in the method used for obtaining peak fitness in the horse - both in the methods and the understanding that goes into the preparation of the horse. This book is aimed at trainers, riders and owners who want to increase their knowledge of the horse's body systems during the exercise and devise suitable training programmes for disciplines as diverse as long distance riding and three day eventing. It is an informative read for all those involved with the health and fitness of horses, whether training for Badmington or a Pony Club competition.
