Whole Horse Dissection Clinics

Two Day Clinics - Virginia US

Very hands-on and interactive!

Perfect for the equine professional needing a refresher, or the serious owner wanting a deeper understanding of the equine body.

DAY 1:

  • Horse in motion – briefly explore interactive movement of the fore and hind limbs
  • Abdomen/fascia and organs and influence on motion
  • Thorax – ligaments of chest, lungs and neck and organs and how motion influences them

DAY 2:

  • Basic anatomy of head and neck
  • Detailed dissection of fore and hind limbs – naming muscles, nerves, ligaments, vessels and how they all influence motion

Each horse presents a unique set of problems. Time will be spent exploring the unique fascial connections created by the particular individual’s issues.

We would like you to leave the course with a better understanding of medical terminology and anatomy, as well as a working understanding of the functional anatomy of the horse. 

Naming the flexors and adductors of the hindlimb is one thing, but truly understanding how they are influenced by abdominal musculature; nerve innervation; pelvic and spinal posture and organ mobility; as well as how they influence the rotation and range of motion of the stifle and hock, is the key to appreciating functional anatomy. 

Each day will start with a short anatomy review before beginning our dissection. We will work on one area until lunch break, then reconvene in the afternoon for another
short anatomy review before our second dissection period on a different area of study.

Articulating skeletal models available for reference.

Clinic dates will be released when our new, state-of-the-art facility is completed.

Whole Horse Dissection Clinic Testimonials

Here is what some participants had to say:

I'm still amazed. Every textbook of equine anatomy has come to life since the Dissection Weekend.

The creativity in your approach allowed for answers to both the anatomical and biomechanical questions that I've carried with me from barn to barn for the past 4 years.

Thank you so much for being innovators in this underutilized field, I learned more in one weekend than I could have ever imagined. I will definitely be signing up for another.

Thanks again,

Andy Smith, DC, Equine A.R.T. practitioner



A huge thank you to Dr. Ann-Marie Hancock and Paige Poss for putting on the 'Whole Horse Dissection Clinic' earlier this week. It was an incredible learning opportunity and the knowledge gained from watching and participating will make a significant difference in how I work with some of my equine bodywork clients. Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge.
