The majestic movement of the horse never fails to thrill horse lovers the
world over. The ability of the horse to move and achieve such a variety of athletic feats is fascinating to watch. How does the horse do this?
This non-degree online course examines the components of the systems that
enable these athletic achievements. It is a study of the functions of those
components, and the anatomical structures that fulfill those functions. A case scenario is used to introduce anatomy and how
it all works.
This course is entirely online, so no travel to the University of Guelph is required.
NOTE: This course is a core course in the Equine Science Certificate and Diploma in Equine Studies programs. For details about these programs, please see the program websites.
