Reviews

"The authors have created an excellent resource for undergraduate, graduate and even veterinary students. For the horse, owner, trainer and equine clinician, this text is a great resource to pull out when one is interested in a more clear understanding of advance integrative and applied aspects of the field of equine exercise physiology and equine sports medicine." (The Veterinary Journal, 2005)
