If Horses Could Speak

By Christina Johnson

If Horses Could Speak is an interesting presentation for horse lovers, veterinarians, and professional body therapists. It shows how incorrect “modern” riding and training negatively affect horses’ health. The natural movement of the horse uses muscles that are shown by anatomical overlays in the film, and you will see the movement in real time, and what harm may happen to the horse when a rider is unaware of the horse’s anatomy. Author and equestrian Dr. Gerd Heuschmann, a German veterinarian, presents the theory and narration. Host Christina Johnson will give a short talk on the benefits of equine cranial sacral therapy. From watching the film, you will have more knowledge of how the horse may receive an injury in one area of the body that emerges as pain in another location. How can we be more respectful toward horses? How can we be more sensitive to their comfort? Using vivid color illustrations of the horse’s skeletal system, ligaments, and musculature, in addition to comparative photos depicting “correct” versus “incorrect” movement—and most importantly, photos of damaging schooling methods—Dr. Heuschmann convincingly argues that the horse’s body tells us whether our riding is truly gymnasticizing and “building the horse up” or simply wearing it down and tearing it apart.
