The Making of a Racehorse (Ep 3): Part Two | The Locomotion System

22 May 2024
In the second part of Episode Three in our new Behind The Scenes series, The Making of a Racehorse, Veterinarian Clive Hamblin tells us about how the horse's spine connects the front of the horse, to the back.

Clive shows us how the horse holds up his neck, using ligaments positioned along the top of the neck, as well as how the hind legs are connected, allowing the animal to propel itself forwards with such power.

Join us on Friday for Part Three.
