Interesting video about race horse biomechanics

Found this and thought it was interesting how the horses body works. There is a dissection so if you are squeamish don't watch. Really gives you an in depth look at just how powerful they are, and how their bodies work

That's what I was thinking when I watched it. Does it come in a prepurchase exam? That would be useful for the buyers and hopefully have less "rejects" that end up at auction

Thanks for sharing! Great show! I was amazed by some of the facts...
plus I had to giggle at the comment that the bloodstock agent made looking at prospects at the sale...
