Dear People -- This is a first announcement, given as early as we can so that those of you who wish to attend can make your plane reservations in time to get the best deal.

The 5-day full-body anatomy class will be meeting in central Oregon. Our sponsor once again is the very personable Dr. Joe Lally, DC, who is also a great organizer. We had much fun with this class under Dr. Joe's aegis last year and hope to see many of you come out this year, too.

For more information about class content, click on this link (posted last year, but the class content has not changed): http://esiforum.mywowbb.com/forum1/612.html

There is ONE change you should please take note of -- Dr. Joe requests that you contact him initially by EMail -- the new address is drjoe@horsechiro.com. That way, he can EMail you the full set of documents right off the bat, which will save many of the usual questions.

Dr. Joe will be handling enrollments but will also help you find where to stay, which airport to fly to, and so forth.

We have 20 spaces in this class -- we're already half full thanks to the waiting list from last time plus some early sign-ups. This is your one opportunity in 2011 to take this class in the U.S. And -- friends from Australia and NZ please take note -- I have no plans to offer this class anytime soon down your way, so if you were planning a U.S. holiday in 2011, you might think about tacking this on.

Thanks very much to all who have expressed interest in this class -- it really is a wonderful opportunity to learn how the horse's body works, and how you can incorporate that knowledge into your daily riding and training to benefit both your horse and yourself. -- Dr. Deb

If I may add some here,

I initially took this class to learn the actual anatomy that cannot be learned from a book. I have been working on living tissue for nigh on 30 years. Humans, pets, farm animals, zoo animals. I've studied the books,  models, and human cadaver labs in chiropractic college. Touched everything that would let me touch it. When I first got horses twenty years ago I couldn't keep my hands off of them, still can't. I always wondered what I was really touching, what was actually under that hair and skin. most of it guess work and comparative extrapolation from my knowledge of human anatomy.  Which I must admit was fairly accurate. BUT, now I know what it is that I'm working with, of course not completely but with a confidence that I have never known until working with Dr Deb.

This class is not just an anatomy class. This class is an experience in the evolution of equus. As a palentologist Dr Deb brings us to a place of understanding that is not to be rivaled anywhere in the world, relative to the single mammal that has willingly advanced civilization the way that our friend the horse has.

If you want to know more, come to our class. If you utilize a body worker, chiropractor, or any other modality to help your horse, tell them about the class. This class fulfills post grad requirements for body workers, equine dentist, and for veterinarians in some states.

It is truely an experience of a life time... and I get to do it again.

Cheers,

Dr Joe

Yes, soon to arrive.
I log 1100 miles a week on my rounds and am only at the computer when home, which is 1-2 days per week.

Thank You

Yes, Joe -- At a previous anatomy class we did here at my lab in California, David provided us with the best meals we ever had at any event, bar none. He's a fabulous menu planner and a great cook. We just need to provide a kitchen and some pots and pans and serving dishes, and Dave pretty much does the rest. If David can really make it out to this class, we'll be very lucky to have him on board. Cheers -- Dr. Deb

For completeness sake


Presenting
Dr Deb Bennett's Equine Anatomy Program


Come join the world renowned anatomist Dr Deb Bennett as we explore and learn about the inner workings of the horse.

This program is an intense 5 day dissection that will be presented as only Dr Bennett can present. This program is for any and all interested students of the horse; trainers, body workers, veterinarians, vet techs, chiropractors, farriers, riders, and any other interested persons.

Don't Miss


Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to learn so much from a world recognized expert in the field of anatomy. The focus is on the musculo-skeletal system and the loosely followed syllabus is as follows:


Day 1: Lecture:

Review of tissue types and properties, part 1; skeletal maturation in the horse; and introduction to muscles and biomechanics of the neck.

Day 1: Lab:
Dissection of the neck. Featuring: fascia and skin; multiple muscle layers; function of poll joint, atlas and axis, head twirling; major circulatory vessels; biomechanical function of base of neck.

Day 2: Lecture:
Review of tissue types and properties, part 2; anatomy and physiology of chewing, swallowing, and breathing; basic principles of bitting.

Day 2: Lab:
Dissection of the head. Featuring: Dentition, pharynx, larynx, hyoid apparatus, tongue, muscles used for chewing, muscles of expression, muscles used in swallowing. Demonstration and discussion of chewing, tooth wear and eruption, dental problems and issues.

Day 3: Lecture:
Basic principles of biomechanics; true nature of tendon, white vs. yellow ligament; slings and levers in the horse's body; the "Woody" paradigm and the concept of anatomical straightness.

Day 3: Lab:
Dissection of the shoulder, withers, and upper forelimb; the pectoral and serratus muscle complexes and their function; demonstration of all muscles involved in forelimb protraction and retraction.

Day 4: Lecture:
Internal systems: digestive tube, circulatory system, and organization of the nervous system. Lymph and 'subtle' systems. Muscles of the haunch and the importance of 'untracking'; stay and reciprocating systems built into the horse's limbs.

Day 4: Lab:
Dissection of the haunch; demonstration of reciprocating apparatus of hind limb, including the 'hook' within the stifle joint. Further dissection of the forelimb, with demonstration of the reciprocating system of the forelimb, including function of the 'check' ligaments and implications for understanding stance and hoof breakover.

Day 5: Lecture:
The 'ring of muscles' paradigm, core muscles, core fitness, and the true nature of collection in the ridden horse. Implications for trimming and hoof growth. Structure of the hoof capsule and review of structures within the capsule, mechanism of hoof growth, understanding laminitis and navicular disease.

Day 5: Lab:
Demonstration of the long muscles of the back and the muscles of the interior core which empower extension and flexion of the spine and collection. Deepest layer of muscles in the neck and their continuity with muscles of the torso and haunch. Deep dissection of the distal limb, hoof capsule structure, hoof trimming principles, circulation to the hoof, digital cushion, coffin joint.



This class is not just an anatomy class. This class is an experience in the evolution of equus. As a palentologist Dr Deb brings us to a place of understanding that is not to be rivaled anywhere in the world, relative to the single mammal that has willingly advanced civilization the way that our friend the horse has.



Reserve your spot today

In consideration for these economic times this is the first time that Dr Bennett is allowing partial enrollment and letting students choose to come only on specific days and not needing to sign up for the entire program.

Tuition:

  • $225.00/day partial enrollment
  • $200.00/day full 5 day enrollment




Class Location:

      Bend, Oregon is a destination resort town for the world renowned Mt Bachelor. That being said there is a full range of accommodations from camping to 5 star resorts and plenty of everything in between with all the restaurants to go along .
Visit Bend

Class:

    The class is fully self contained and all supplies are included. There will be a daily catered lunch with coffee, tea, and snacks supplied throughout the day.


    There will be shuttle service from the Redmond, OR airport to the designated Hotel/Motel and then shuttle from motel to class daily so a rental car is only needed if you wish to explore the area.  There will be plenty of people driving locally and it always work out that we explore some of the local eateries as a group.
