The Challenges of Working at Eventing Competitions

10 Aug 2017 09:00 - 17:30

This course is designed for veterinary surgeons with an interest in working at Horse Trials/Three Day Event competitions. The course will run during the Three Day Event at Hartpury College, allowing a course walk and discussion of the veterinary arrangements and practical aspects of this type of work. The course will focus on the cross country phase of the competition and aims to cover a range of areas from preparation prior to the competition, treatment of injuries or accidents that may arise during the competition and treating specific conditions after the competition. Afternoon practical sessions are designed to complement the morning lectures as well as to allow discussions of some potentially difficult situations.
