How the Race horse works

This is absolutely fascinating. WARNING is graphic so squeamish beware.

I agree. Fascinating!

I'm grateful to those who research the equine athlete.

I saw this a month or two ago, its facinating, and I loved how they used an acutal horse to demonstrate with so we could experience it for ourselves.

I watched this a while ago, and then made my parents watch it. It's fascinating stuff - I loved seeing how much pressure the legs could take.

I found it astonishing at the rate the horses lungs breath in/out, as well as the strain on the legs, until the tendon/s would snap.

Love love loved it.

This was part of a whole series of inside large animals. I watched it when it was first broadcast on TV - fascinating
