Welcome to Nevzorov Haute École

Equine Anatomy & Physiology Course

About this course:

This hippology course is designed to support students in their study of the Nevzorov Haute École Method.

The main NHE School rule: horse teaching requires knowledge of equine science, anatomy and physiology.

What makes this course special:

Equine anatomy textbooks centre around ridden horses, sports, bits, and competitions, and other limited ideas about horses.

Referencing to horses as something to ride does not align with NHE. This can be distracting, as we find ourselves sifting through information that does not align with the well-being of our unridden horses.

This course, in contrast, is exclusively based on unridden horses. The NHE approach to equine anatomy and physiology is knowing a healthy horse is one that is not ridden. 

What you will learn:

This course explores all major systems of a horse's body. The specific insights in each section are tailored specifically for practitioners of the Nevzorov Haute École method.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course, you will:

- Understand the fundamental composition of the horse's body and its cellular processes.

- Know key anatomical terms and concepts.

- Gain insight into the equine nervous system, including its organization and function, as well as identify major peripheral nerves and their roles.

- Explore the sensory systems and delve into the distinctive perceptions of horses.

- Familiarize yourself with major organs and their impact on the endocrine system, including the latest findings on equine sleep.

- Identify key components of the equine skeletal system, encompassing bones and joints.

- Describe the equine muscular system, comprehending both its microscopic and macroscopic functions.

- Understand the circulatory system's role and its interconnectedness with other bodily systems, such as the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems.

- Examine the organization of the respiratory system, from the conduction system to gas exchange and respiration mechanisms.

- Explore the digestive system, its organization, and its functions.

- Investigate the urinary system's organ systems.

- Identify major organs within each reproductive system.

- Gain knowledge of the equine hoof, including its structure, lifestyle considerations, and feeding requirements for optimal hoof health. You will also learn the basics of an anatomically correct trim.

Key Features:

- Self-paced learning with no strict deadlines.

- One year full access, including all course updates with option to extend access after a year.

Dedicated to Horse Well-being and Understanding:

Hippological knowledge is necessary for anyone who wants to work with horses and is a vital tool for safeguarding and supporting horses' health. This knowledge is at the heart of effective communication with our horses , as emphasised by Alexander Nevzorov which he calls, "myological vision."

With this knowledge, we gain insight into the inner workings of our horses. This is where true mastery of the NHE method comes in.
