    Tutorial Subscription: Get 8 short audio-visual Horse Movement and Biomechanics Tutorials, one every 6 weeks for 10 months, from November 2014 through August 2015.

(3) How a horse gallops and what a lead change is. (4) Gait and metabolism in the horse. (5) The bones of a horse’s legs and feet. (6) Stress and the horse’s lower legs and feet. (7) Stress and a horse’s upper legs. (8) Muscles and tendons as tension bands that reduce stresses. You also get all the rewards listed for the previous pledge levels.
