Fascial Anatomy of the Equine Forelimb

Lusi and Davies have provided an excellent reference resource for students and graduates alike. The number of well-defined, relevant and clear images allow quick understanding for anyone interested in the fascial anatomy of the horse. This small book is perfect to have in your bag, allowing the student or clinician to find all the information they need on-site. – Sophie Neasham, final year veterinary student, University of Veterinary Medicine in Kosice, Slovakia

  • The first book in equine anatomy to illustrate the fascial (soft connective tissue) connections of the equine forelimb.
  • Clear, high-quality images (with reference images included on each page) help readers identify aspects of the limb photographed.
  • A brief introduction to the forelimb musculoskeletal anatomy (with images) helps readers familiarize themselves with muscles and bones portrayed in photographs.
  • Focused discussions highlight the practical applicability of the fascial connections illustrated.
  • Accompanying video clips demonstrate connectivity of the fascial system particular lines of tension.
About The Author

Carla M Lusi (BSc, PhD) completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne. Her PhD (supervised by Helen MS Davies) focused on mapping out the fascial connectivity in the equine forelimb.

Helen MS Davies (BAgSci. MAgrSc. BVSc. PhD) is Associate Professor in Veterinary Anatomy, The University of Melbourne. Previously primary author on three anatomy chapters in “Equine Podiatry” (publ. Saunders 2007) and coauthored a chapter on hoof biomechanics in “Equine Laminitis” (publ. Wiley 2016 ). Extensive experience in the following aspects relevant to this proposal; teaching veterinary locomotory and regional anatomy to veterinary students and post graduate courses in physiotherapy and other associated professions  (25 years); equine biomechanical and anatomical research (25 years);  training horses and riders in all disciplines (40 years); treating and advising trainers and riders on the prevention and management of musculoskeletal conditions (25 years); measuring the development of changes in forelimb loading in young horses in training (25 years).
