Evening 4: Promoting health and welfare during training and exercise
22nd February, 6.30pm
How we train, handle and exercise our horses has a profound influence on their physical and mental state, as well as their overall wellbeing. Starting the evening with the physiology aspects of joint and muscle care, our experts will discuss strategies to promote healthy range of movement and best practise methods in preventative joint and muscle health.
Dr Andrew McLean will then lead us into a discussion around promoting welfare using clear, ethical and systematic approaches when interacting with our horses, be that through ground work or in the saddle.
