ANSC 1400 - Equine Anatomy and Locomotion

This course applies the understanding of equine anatomy and physiology to practical horsemanship and farrier science. This course focuses on lower limb anatomy and the interaction of skeleto-muscular systems on locomotion and pathology. Basic farrier theory, including shoe selection and foot and leg care will also be introduced.




Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of EQST 1400 Equine Anatomy and Locomotion the student will:

  1. diagram the muscle and skeletal anatomy of a horse’s lower limb.
  2. acquire an equine anatomy and physiology vocabulary to facilitate communication with horse owners and veterinarians.
  3. analyze horse movement as it relates to anatomy and physiology.
  4. evaluate pathologies due to the anatomy and physiology of the lower limb or due to improper foot care and shoeing.
  5. troubleshoot common foot and shoeing problems.
  6. handle horses safely.
  7. compare different horseshoe and nail types to their applications.
