This lecture covers the tendon and ligament anatomy of the joints of the dog and the horse. The topic includes the passive stay apparatus in the horse with mention of several other species, and the complex ligament function in the spinal column. The goal of this lecture is to impress upon the student the wonder of how these ligaments are not simply passive ropes and pulleys but active through static function with a vast array of receptors for monitoring motor output and signaling sensory function. At the end of this class the student should be able to grasp the concept of the need for normal function of the tendon and ligament systems.

It was very strait forward…
All of the material was very informative…
It was easy to follow. Videos are always helpful for me…
It was very informative and easy to understand. A great review. I liked how I could go back and listen to each slide over again. Also, I liked being able to pause the slides and come back later. Great photos and diagrams and a wonderful, simple yet elegant explanation and description of each ligament. This makes it easier to remember and learn…
