This DVD is an extension of the book Pilates and Stretching for Horses - An Exercise Index for Horse Owners. It begins by exploring relevant aspects of the anatomy of the musculo skeletal system and the principles and benefits of 'Pilates' type exercises as applied to the horse. It then demonstrates exactly how, why, when and where to perform the exercises. The DVD is unique in that it shows exercises targeting the equivalent muscle groups for people.
