Hilary Clayton: Biomechanical Interactions – the Rider, the Tack and the Horse

Dr. Clayton shares her thoughts at the University of New Hampshire Equine Program on October 27, 2015

There is no doubt that how we ride our horses, the tack we use on them and the manner in which the horses carry themselves has a cumulative effect on their well-being over time.  Whether that effect is positive or negative is one of the questions considered in the study of equine bio mechanics, which combines the disciplines of physics and physiology to study how forces and work affect the body of the horse.  Dr. Hilary Clayton is well known for the work she has done in this field, and she visited the University of New Hampshire in October of 2015 to share her thoughts on some of the more common interactions which occur among the horse, the rider and the tack.
