In athletics as in architecture, form follows function, and nowhere is that truth more important than in equestrian sports.

Using hundreds of photographs and drawings, this masterfully produced book will show you how to develop the "eye" that any horseman needs to assess equine conformation and anatomy. Its comprehensive text focuses on: Ideal and abnormal conformation features Balance and symmetry The relationship between conformation faults and athletic ability Colors and markings Anatomical elements, teeth, and aging Digestive, neurological, respiratory, and circulatory systems The relationship between structure and function Now in paperback, Horse Conformation is the single most valuable book on its subject and one that deserves a prominent place in every horse owner's or rider's library.
