Proximal Limb anatomy, pathology and injuries

Event description

As with the distal limb in horses, the proximal limb is a source of much lameness, from the knee/hock upwards it covers an area prone to injury and trauma. From arthritis to sprains, tendinopathies to hamstring ruptures, we will be looking closely at differing issues, causes, diagnoses and treatments, all under the expert eye of our speaker panel. You will be able to ask the panel questions on the live event, or discuss in the group if you watch on-demand.

After watching this event you will have an in-depth understanding of the anatomy of the proximal limb and how to manage any issues affecting it, which you can apply to your everyday practice.

In 2009 Graham was appointed as an RCVS examiner for the Certificate in Equine Practice and continued in this position for 5 years.

Yasmin Stuart Equine movement and rehabilitation specialist

Yasmin is an equine physiotherapist who specialises in movement therapy and rehabilitation. Her keen interest within this area is the use of prescriptive exercise to help improve posture and performance, while considering the horse's behavioural indicators within the working environment. She is passionate about the holistic approach to equine management – that it takes teamwork to help to promote and maintain equine wellbeing and performance.

Yasmin has worked alongside organisations such as Equitopia Center, where she taught on training clinics internationally, and is now Equine Physiotherapy Programme Manager for The Open College of Equine Studies. She also has a private practice which has a strong rehabilitation focus, to help owners to support their horse's wellbeing through research-led training practices, which teach owners to understand their horse's behaviour, while using an ethics-based training approach to help their horse to adopt more appropriate movement patterns.
