Conformation Workbook No. 1: Basic Skills

(2017) by Deb Bennett, Ph.D.

The purpose of this Workbook is to take you through all the steps in learning how to really "see" a horse's conformation. It begins by teaching you how to find palpation points, then goes on to show you exactly how to find underlying anatomical structures by feeling your horse's limbs and body. Details are covered including tooth eruption and the parts of the hoof and their functions. The skeleton, basis for conformation, is presented so that you can learn every part. There is also direction on how to mark, measure, and analyze a photo of your horse or a photo of one that you're considering for purchase. There's a section on foal growth and predicting adult height, and even one on how to take a good analytical photo.

To help you learn the terminology,there is an anatomical dictionary and glossary of terms, and of course the volume is also thoroughly indexed for easy reference.

The stars of the show in this Workbook are the big, clearly-labeled illustrations, which are set up for you to photocopy and then mark it, color it, or otherwise work with it as the included homework exercises suggest. Other homework exercises guide you in learning to palpate on your own horse, practicing taking photos in the analytical style, or taking a field trip to your local museum of natural history. There are also "visual quizzes" which you can take as open-book tests.
