Event description


This seminar is not to be missed!!

For the first time in WA, Sharon May Davis will be presenting some of her research to the general public. This evening is aimed at anyone who is curious about new developments and new research in equine anatomy and biomechanics.

Sharon May - Davis is known worldwide for her knowledge of the horses body and biomechanics. Sharon's many dissections around the world has enabled her to research her work with many different breeds, her work as a researcher and therapist has truly driven her passsion and enabled her to see the true story - what is really going on underneath.

This seminar will be bringing all the latest and up to date research to date - covering;

The Congenital Malformation of C6 and C7.
This current research is being picked up by the Italians, Americans (UC Davis) and Willem Back at Utrecht (Willem Back wrote Equine Locomotion with Hilary Clayton) and Sue Dyson from the Animal Health Trust in the UK. The talk discusses the malformation and the potential ramification of riding such horses and the visual indicators to watch out for via veterinary work ups that have been videoed.

Femoral Asymmetry in Thoroughbred Racehorses raced and trained in One direction.
The implications upon anatomic structures for the young horse and what it means for them as they are reintroduced into a new discipline when their racing career has ended.
This research was published 10 years ago and made a dramatic difference for me as a Therapist trying to manage such horses.

And if there's time!!! The Equine Elbow: A Joint in Trouble
Hopefully, this will be scientifically published by 2018.
It discusses / shows the action of a healthy elbow and one that is compromised even when a horse appears sound.
My stats are that 100% of ridden and driven horses have mild to severe degradation of the humerus, radius and ulna.

Sharon shares a wealth of knowledge that she has encountered in years of research, what the effects are on our present horse, how to adapt our way of training, what you as a therapist needs to know so that you can support the horse in the right way, what you need to know as hoof trimmer, which is important for you as a coach and or trainer.

Cost is $80 inc refreshments
