"Maintaining Optimal Respiratory Function in Equine Athletes" & "The Beautiful Horse in the World of George Stubbs"


The University of Liverpool’s Equine Hospital offers highly-sophisticated equipment and expert care to diagnose and treat both the pet pony and the thoroughbred racer. In the best of times, clean air and a healthy pulmonary system are crucial for racing performance, though this year, equine flu has threatened the respiratory function of horses as well as racing fixtures. In the 18th century, a Liverpool-born artist, son of a currier, learned the anatomy of the horse without MRI or CT technology, but through a methodical stripping away of skin and muscles, down to the bone. George Stubbs went on to be the premier painter of elite racehorses of his day. These two talks explore the anatomy and physiology of the horse from the inside.Enrol on Anatomy of a Racehorse
