A webinar introducing our native equine breeds and their challenges and opportunities in a new era of equestrianism. Hosted by Stallion AI Services, the webinar will also reveal how working with equine native breeds has led to ground breaking developments in wild and endangered species conservation.
Presentation 1: Equine Native Breeds – Conserving & Rebranding the Backbone of the Modern Day Sports Horse – Speaker: Lucy Morgan (BSc Hons)
Presentation 2: Resurrecting the dead: From saving the Suffolk Punch to saving the last two White Rhino’s: A new approach to wild & endangered species conservation. – Speaker: Tullis Matson
Tullis Matson (FRAgS, HonDTech, DL)
Tullis Matson is founder, owner, and director of Stallion AI Services; one of the world’s leading equine semen processing and distribution centres. With over 30 years of experience in cryopreservation of reproductive samples, Tullis has a wealth of knowledge that covers not only the sport horse industry, but also rare and native equine breeds. Tullis is also founder and chair of charity Nature’s SAFE – a ground breaking charity for the conservation of wild and endangered species that was an official Earthshot Nominee for 2022. Tullis’s presentation for this webinar will explain how working with native and rare equine breeds became the foundation for a charity termed the ‘missing piece’ in wild and endangered species conservation.
Lucy Morgan (BSc Hons)
Lucy Morgan is manager of domestic animal genetic preservation company Gemini Genetics. A former employee of Stallion AI Services, Lucy transferred to company Gemini Genetics upon the need for an alternative, non-semen-based way of preserving equine rare breed genetics, to aid with whole breed conservation. Gemini Genetics thus works with skin samples to preserve animal DNA, so enabling the preservation of females and castrated males, alongside stallions with banked semen. Gemini Genetics also preserves skin samples for cat, dog and equine cloning. Lucy’s presentation for this webinar will introduce the native equine breeds, their versatility campaign and the technologies being used to bring them back from the brink.
