All in a day’s work: The equine functional anatomist *H&H Plus*

  • Gillian Higgins on making anatomy fascinating, painting horses for The Queen and “skeletons” running in the rain

    I never dreamed I’d be doing this, it’s one of those things that just happened. I’ve always loved horses and been interested in how they work, and am quite creative. I started as a human sports remedial therapist, then did other courses and my British Horse Society coaching exams.

    I evented to advanced level when I was younger so I had the riding and training background, and pulled it all together. I was coaching and doing therapy when I realised many clients would benefit from a better understanding of how horses work.
