To be held virtually on Saturday 11th December 2021, the event will bring together renowned researchers and vets from around the globe to discuss ‘Welfare and Performance of the Ridden Horse: The Future’.

The conference will explore how science is increasingly important in providing an evidence-base for best practice in ridden horse management. Using the latest knowledge and research, scientists, vets and equine specialists will discuss the advances in welfare and performance of the ridden horse.
