Become a “go-to” expert with this artful and in-depth educational program ideal for riders, caregivers, barn managers, veterinary assistants, and colleges with equine programs. Testing shows that most stabled horses have some degree of airway inflammation, yet most riders do not know how to identify respiratory issues or how to avoid disease or stop its progression from affecting their horse’s performance.
