Philosophy.

My objective in writing these books is to provide riders, drivers, trainers, veterinarians and other professionals with a background of scientific facts upon which to base a logical system of training and conditioning athletic horses. Through an understanding of exercise physiology and biomechanics, readers gain a fundamental understanding of equine sports medicine and athletic performance.


Horses compete in a diverse range of sporting activities, each requiring specific technical skills and different levels of physical fitness. These books give the reader an insight into how the horse’s body works, the factors that affect performance in different equestrian sports and how to assess the horse’s movements with a scientific eye.
