Our series of evening talks proved very popular once again and the talks presented by Gillian Higgins and Professor Derek Knottenbelt were fascinating. Gillian’s first talk was on asymmetry and she showed how the riders asymmetry affects the horse and also how asymmetry of the muscular system of the horse can affect the rider. Gillian’s second talk was on training aids and she presented an unbiased view of the effectiveness of a variety of training aids.
Professor Derek Knottenbelt OBE, BVM&S, Dip ECEIM, MRCVS from Liverpool University discussed two topics, the weighty issue of ‘too fat, too thin or just right – fat is the question’ and the devastating effect of head shaking on the horse's health and wellbeing.
Details of 2013 talks coming soon - keep an eye on our events list.
