This is a book about the restitution of soundness in horses which have been trained under seemingly ideal conditions, and nonetheless suffered injury. Most of the books authors have had direct experience in performing medical and surgical interventions designed to correct athletic injuries. Most of the authors have also been directly involved in the conditioning techniques designed to not only render their own charges ready for competition, but also ready to win. The book suggests how things can go wrong even with mans best-laid plans. The text then describes the path back from athletic injuries based upon that which is known about equine anatomy and physiology, and draws upon experience in human rehabilitation where applicable.
