Centaur Biomechanics Webinars


Biomechanics of Dressage and Jumping Horses

Sunday 16 June 2024

c From an evidenced-based perspective and with the use of slow-motion footage, the first part of this 2-hour webinar will discuss the biomechanical demands placed on the locomotor system when performing high-level dressage movements such as half pass, piaffe, passage and flying changes as well as the basic biomechanical principles of the walk, trot and canter. The second part will discuss the biomechanical demands when jumping a fence, with particular attention given to the forces associated during the take-off and landing and the effect that different fences can have on the horse jumping technique. The final part of the session will discuss some of the external factors that can affect the health, athletic performance and longevity of the horse.

For all attendees, CPD certificates are available as well as a “view only” recording of the webinar with a 30-day access pass. There will also be a Q and A session with ample opportunity to post questions via our interactive Q&A panel.
