Dear Biomech-L,

Thanks to every one who responded ! I received email from people involved
in very different areas: fish swimming to racing Thoroughbreds !

Marianne Sloet from our Equine Biomechanics Research Group will give a
presentation at the 1995 AESM meeting in Bonn (June 24-28) about the
influence of fatigue on the locomotion of warmblood horses at walk before
and after a strenuous excercise.

Enclosed you will find the responses from biomech-l and horsecience.

Thanks again !
