I'm a vet student and only have a very limited amount of time to learn a lot of different subjects. I find that this book is a great complement to the more complicated anatomy books. For me learning is about being able to go over my texts, annotate, and actually colour diagrams in! I don't know about anyone else, but this is actually how I learn!
The fact that this book is cheap made it ideal for this purpose, plus the amount of detail that it goes into makes it actually fantastic. This is because you go out to learn basic anatomy and then get interested and so add the more complicated bits in.
I know we vet students have to somewhat ridiculously learn everything (ok, it just feels like that to us!). But as a past horse owner I feel that this book would also be beneficial to those owners who are looking to know a bit more about their horse. My only critism of the book is that you do really need to take time to go over it slowly and make your own annotations, as it can look a bit daunting to start off with. However, as I said before this is actually for me one of the main attractions to this book, as I find that even after a few minutes of studying it gets me hooked and wanting to know more.

Excellent book - I especially liked the diagrams that show where on a horse to feel for particular bones and tendons.
It also included diagrams from angles that I haven't seen in other horse anatomy books, e.g. the skeleton from in front of the horse, behind the horse and from above, these pictures gave me a better understanding of what the overall structures look like.
The diagrams of the internal organs can be a little confusing, since all the organs are dealt with on the same diagrams, instead of being split up into separate diagrams for digestion, respiration, etc.
I'd also recommend "Horse anatomy - a colouring atlas", by using the two, you get a good understanding of the subject.

Even if you are not studying for horsey exams or to become a vet I would personally recommend this book to anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge on the horse from readers age of 8-80+ -the complex structures of the horse anatomy are laid out with very clear diagrams and descriptions in a "painting by numbers" detail.
Certainly very good value for money & one which should be on the shelves of anyone with a passion for horses!

This book is better now it has been updated. The diagrams are easier to see, and the text has been increased.
The added plates are a helpful extra and this book was very helpful when writing my dissertation.
If you need a good functional anatomy book on horses then this one should be top of your list!

Loved this book. Although I'm not a vetenary student this book is fantastic. The illustrations are very useful for understanding how your horse works.
