Getting Horses Fit Summary

Getting Horses Fit: Improve Your Horse's Performance by Sarah Pilliner

This is a new edition of an established textbook (first published in 1986) which explains exactly what is required of today's competition horse in order to meet modern demands. Sections on feeding and care of the competition horse are combined with the latest thoughts on equine physiology to make this book unique in the way in which it combines understandable science with practice. The second edition includes a completely new chapter on the utilisation of nutrients during exercise, which reflects the greater attention being paid to the combination of work and feeding as integral parts of a successful training and fitness programme. Another new chapter - on the role of equine sports physiology and sports therapy - outlines the latest research and its practical applications.
