The horse's URT is divided into the nares, turbinates, pharynx,
and larynx. The lower respiratory tract (LRT) is the next
anatomic step and is made up of the trachea and the lungs.
It can be a useful method
to logically divide the anatomy in your mind to help you define exactly
what the problem is so that you can properly address the problem and
hopefully, improve performance. For this project, the anatomy is
divided accordingly. We will start with the URT.
The larynx and pharynx
are most commonly affected and cause poor performance.
