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.
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.
Certainly very good value for money & one which should be on the shelves of anyone with a passion for horses!
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!

I used the original edition, as a veterinary undergraduate. This edition is even better. There is plenty of detail for those that require it.Published on 4 Dec. 2011 by Scribo
