Ever wonder which conditioning programs are best for different types of sports and body types? Do you know what is happening to the horse physically with your training schedule and what is required of his various systems? You should be asking yourself these questions and loads more if you are in any equine profession!

In this four day course, Dr. David Marlin, will present an in depth coverage of the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, muscular system, energy production, conditioning programs, and thermoregulation. He will target this information to the equine health care professional and trainer and how it relates to our field as well as discuss and demonstrate exercises to improve strength and suppleness.

 

Dr. Marlin's, unique style of teaching makes him a perfect choice for Equinology ® students. You'll find him thoroughly enthusiastic about the material as well as entertaining even with the toughest topics. His areas of expertise in teaching and research include exercise physiology with an emphasis on respiratory function in man and animals in health and disease with special focus on asthma and thermoregulation.

 

Much of the information is backed by scientific research, some is based on on-going studies and some is gut instinct. Dr. Marlin will also go into detail about conditioning programs for different types of disiplines. Every year the class expands as new research unfolds new findings.

 

The material will be covered through lecture, classroom exercises, hands-on horses and lots of Q and A.
