So reading through another horse magazine, I stumbled across the promise of a Free Equine Course. Need I say more? 🙂
Yes, there’s always a catch. This one however, I believe is quite small and worth the look if you’re interested in pursuing study relating to Equine Anatomy. Equinology.com are the owners of this particular offer.
The ‘course’ is offered via distance education and is one subject or module from a few of their different courses available through the website. Able to be done at your own pace and ending with an exam, the only fee incurred is a $20 (USD) set up fee. For a subject that is estimated to be about 100 hours worth, this is very cheap!
For those interested, take a look at http://www.equinology.com/info/course.asp?courseid=73. Course content includes Anatomy and Veterinary Terminology and Vocab, the Muscular System, the Skeletal System and Palpating Bony Landmarks and Surface Anatomy.
Perhaps those of you planning on improving your equine knowledge in 2011 may find this just the nudge in the right direction that you need…
