Course Overview:

Educational Objectiv

Using bones, models, visuals, books, hand-outs, reference material and live horses, Debranne Pattillo, MEEBW, and president and founder of Equinology Inc®, will lead and direct the group. Students will work in teams of two, building the muscles on the Equiken® models at a comfortable pace, researching each muscle as the building progresses. Students become very familiar with various published books, publications and internet resources during the course, thus enabling them to research anatomy better. Student palpate and/or identify the location of the muscles built on live horses daily. The student will have a chance to ensure he or she has understood the information by completing a self-assessment before the beginning of each class. Students are responsible to attend all six days of class in the classroom and are expected to spend the off day reviewing material for at least 8 hours.

This course is designed for individuals who work professionally in the equine health industry as an equine body worker to elevate their anatomy comprehension. It is also attended by those already in the equine health care field to add further their understanding of the equine musculoskeletal system.

The objectives for this course are as follows:

  • list and identify the four layers of muscle to be able to incorporate this knowledge into the student’s session,
  • identify the surface anatomy,
  • understand the structure and function of muscles
  • discuss the limiting factors of soft tissue restriction
  • utilize the referenced anatomy to enhance your current level of knowledge and/or incorporate this working knowledge into your current profession
  • distinguish the symmetry of muscles,
  • diagram the origin and insertion of the muscles discussed in the course, integrate the form and function of the stay apparatus into understanding the functions of muscles and biomechanics of the horse and critique the muscle development of the horse.
