24 May 2024
In the final part of Episode Three in our new Behind The Scenes series, The Making of a Racehorse, Veterinarian Clive Hamblin provides insight into the different muscle types a horse has and details the role each of them has when they're in action.

Clive shows us which muscle groups are used at which points, as well as the various factors that affect a horse's ability to run quicker, plus he explains how their aerobic and anaerobic systems come into play during a race.
