Geor & Emmanuelle Van Erck-Westergen Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery published by Saunders Elsevier, to which I have modestly contributed, with the collaboration of Dr Dominique Votion and Dr Richard J Piercy, in the two chapters dedicated to skeletal muscle, specifically those entitled: "Muscle physiology: responses to exercise and conditioning" and "Muscle disorders of equine athletes", two extensive and profound chapters of which I am very proud.
