Teaching Horse Anatomy

without comments

So, I’ve seen a lot of photographs where the underlying anatomy gets drawn in over the surface anatomy.  I’m actually pretty fond of that style of portraying how anatomy fits inside.  But yesterday I stumbled onto this picture.

It would seem that instructor and sports therapist, Gillian Higgins has perfected the art of painting the underlying anatomy straight on to the surface, and does so repeatedly with her horse to teach horse owners about what’s inside.

This Youtube video gives a nice quick summary of her endeavors.

You’ve got to admit, that’s pretty cool!
