Rachel is a firm believer that education is the best way to improve the lives of horses everywhere. It is her belief that one of the major problems in the industry is a general lack of anatomical understanding of horse movement and body functions. When a horse's basic scientifically studied needs are met, they will be happier athletes. Below are some book recommendations to help any horse owner expand their knowledge.

Horse Anatomy for Performance
This is one of the best basic anatomy books I have found. This is a wonderful book to have around to reference and helps you understand how all the systems need to function in order for the horse to perform well. This is about as beginner- friendly as anatomy can get. Other books by Gillian Higgins are great as well.
