... energy energy storage muscle work The horse has outstanding locomotor abilities. Top racing horses can cover a distance of 1 mile at an average speed of some 15 m s -1 , while top show jumping horses can clear a fence of more than 2.30 m high with a rider on their back. Not surprisingly...

...±0.20 J kg -1 for the five highest accelerations(4.86±0.27 m s -2 ). Ankle work was –0.21±0.11 J kg -1 for the lowest accelerations and 0.71±0.28 J kg -1 for the highest. The high work output at the ankle is consistent with the idea that elastic mechanisms function to increase muscle work during...
