Zefanja Vermeulen

Zefanja Vermeulen founded Equinestudies in 2018, an educational institute where she provides various training courses and lectures both at home and abroad on the theme ‘the horse from the inside out’ (Equine Inside Out). Through conducting many dissections and developing many skeletal preparations, she has gathered a unique spectrum of knowledge and images about the horse’s body. The Horse Inside Out is the way to access this vast knowledge that Zefanja has gained over the decades.


Zefanja: “For me, training horses based on physical well-being has always been the common thread in my life. For this reason I have specialized more and more in the anatomy and biomechanics of horses. Telling their story is my greatest mission. ”


A journey through the horse's body in three parts

In three parts you will go on a journey of discovery along every facet of the horse’s body. And the great thing is: you can do this from home, from the comfort of your own computer and at your own pace. Every month Zefanja Vermeulen, an expert in this field, will host live webinars on highlighted topics and there is room for in-depth questions.


Part 1 is all about the healthy horse. The different systems of the body and their mutual interactions will be mapped. This ranges from the skeleton to the nervous system and from the horse’s senses to the functioning of the organs. The natural behaviour and evolutionary development that the horse has gone through are also discussed.


Part 2 focuses on the horse in motion. Movement plays an essential role in a horse’s life. By learning to recognize how a healthy horse moves, you can learn recognize any abnormalities. You will learn more about the conformation and gaits of the horse and what the horse needs to be able to recover after injury. By means of case studies, the translation is made from theory to practical examples.


In part 3 you will take a closer look at abnormalities in the body that are not only caused by trauma, but also genetic or congenital abnormalities. You will look at the consequences of evolution and domestication for today’s modern horse. You will learn more about the influence of the different disciplines and the tack on the horse’s body. In addition, disorders of the internal systems such as the digestive tract and vascular system are discussed.

A real page turner. You just want to learn more and more. As a teacher I can tell you that this really is wonderful educational material. Varied, informative, visual, narrative and with a touch of humour!” - Saskia Slide “I am a therapist, so I already know a lot. But the addition of the video material from the dissections and the images of the skeletal preparations make 'The Horse Inside Out' absolutely of added value to me” - Stephanie Slide "A course on equine anatomy that explains and describes everything from A to Z! A valuable addition to learn more about the horse's body." - Annette Slide "Just a compliment: how wonderfully captivating, clear and professional this is! It is really well put together, and you can be very proud of this!" - Manoli Slide “An incredibly clear and structured online learning programme.
