Equinalysis and Stromsholm Conference in UK

An exciting new seminar, "Maximising Equine Performance" was held on Wednesday 12th April at the Avon Suite at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, England

Sponsored by Equinalysis (UK) and Stromsholm, the event aimed to address the common concerns of veterinarians, farriers and physiotherapists who work hard to keep performance horses at the peak of condition, while avoiding injury. The central theme of the seminar was how objective evaluation and measurement techniques might be used to maintain equine performance and soundness.

Presenters included (in alphabetical order):
Andrew P. Bathe MRCVS & European Specialist in Equine Surgery Rossdale & Partners Equine Hospital, Newmarket, UK
Mark Caldwell FWCF Lecturer Myerscough College
Richard Davison, British Olympic Dressage Rider
John McEwen BVMS MRCVS, Director of Equine Sports Science, British Equestrian Federation
Chris Pardoe Bsc Hons AWCF
Rob Renirie Consultant farrier to the Netherlands Equestrian Team

This was an outstanding educational event, and will be covered in depth in Hoofcare & Lameness #80. Reports can also be compiled for other publications and web sites. It was an amazing feat to assemble this particular group of speakers, and this event will surely become a blueprint for similar conferences to be held around the world.
