As soon as my own horse was walking around the arena sporting colorful stripes, people started asking me about kinesiology taping, and I started explaining how it worked and how to do it. Interest in kinesiology taping is huge. -- Katja Bredlau-Morich The idea behind kinesiology taping is to explain how taping can provide incredible support and stabilisation of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously stretching and flexing like a 'second skin' to allow full range of motion. Taping can also activate or relax muscles, depending on its application. Katja Bredlau-Morich's book focuses on how taping can be used as a part of any equine health care program. The brilliant photographs included in the book demonstrate how and where to apply the tape to achieve the best results. Katja Bredlau-Morich's extensive background in kinesiology taping make Kinesiology Taping for Horses a rich and comprehensive read. Not only is she an expert in the anatomy and biomechanics of horses, but she writes in a way that anyone can easily understand how to adopt her taping techniques. Kinesiology Taping for Horses is written clearly yet is still rich in detail; I read it cover-to-cover in a single sitting and have a new respect for kinesiology taping without feeling bogged down by minutae. A comprehensive guide to this unique modality.... A book like this needs plenty of good photos to illustrate the techniques, and the author delivers.
