In this book the main research findings in exercise physiology of training and fitness
assessment of horses are reviewed and practical techniques for fitness testing are
described. Important principals for training racehorses, event and endurance horses are
included. Some of the practical information has been based on Dr Evans’ experiences as
a consultant in commercial Thoroughbred horse training.
The book has been written in a style that should be accessible for students, horse owners
and trainers. Some veterinary surgeons are increasingly interested in this field, and are
sometimes expected to assist or advise owners and trainers concerning use of heart rate
meters, measurement of blood lactate concentrations after exercise, and other techniques.
The material should also contribute to veterinary education and lower wastage rates in
the industry.

Enjoy! :up:
