Elite Performance Horse Discussion Forum

22 Nov 2019 08:30 - 18:30

Rossdales Equine Hospital and Diagnostic Centre,

This event is fully booked.

About the Course

A day discussing current and important topics affecting those who are working at the upper levels of performance horse work, both racing and FEI. Speakers include experts in human training and sports medicine, drawing on comparison and potential for cross-species and cross-discipline learning. At the top-level vets are integrally involved in advising on training and management of the horse, so half the day is dedicated to this. The second half covers the medical management, with an emphasis on orthopaedics and optimising performance. The aim is to attract a high-quality audience, leading to stimulating discussion.

Key Learning Objectives

Provide a platform for sharing current research and provoking discussion on topical issues.
Promote open discussion on subjects which require it, including those which are controversial, debatable or in need of clarification.
Explore practices in other sports which may be useful or beneficial when considering the same challenges encountered in equine sports.
Identify areas which require further research, data gathering or greater consensus in order for the profession to make informed clinical decisions.
