V-2654 Visible Horse, the 1/2" VHS Videocassette/52 mins./2000 Susan Harris presents her popular "Visible Horse" demonstration with the muscular and skeletal systems painted on a live horse. This fascinating presentation shows in vibrant color how a horse's bones and muscles work in motion. It includes slowmotion studies of walk, trot, canter, and gallop; what creates good and poor movement; and how to help your horse move better. The program is simply and clearly presented for horse owners and riders of all levels, and is ideally suited for 4-H and Pony Club members as well as adults. It also contains invaluable information for instructors, trainers, equine-massage therapists, farriers, and equine-studies programs. This is a video to watch again and again--you will come away with a far better understanding of your horse.
