Course Description

Are you confident in your approach to horses with back and sacroiliac pain? Is that respiratory noise significant? Are those grade 2 ulcers really causing performance issues? Do you struggle with horses that are performing below expectation? Do you feel confident you have got to the root of the problem?

Equine sports medicine is a rapidly growing area but whether you deal exclusively with race horses or your client base is more pleasure horses and show ponies, all athletic horses have the potential to suffer from performance limiting disorders.

This two day course has been developed to equip equine practitioners with a systematic approach to evaluating poor performance. The lectures and practical sessions will enable clinicians to feel confident in leaving no stone unturned in their case work up. Day one will focus on the musculoskeletal system and exercise physiology whereas day 2 will consider problems of the cardiorespiratory and GI system.

This exciting new addition to our CPD programme is structured to be suitable for delegates working towards an RCVS Cert AVP in equine surgery but is also equally useful for those wishing to refresh their knowledge and skills in equine sports medicine at an advanced practitioner level.

 The workshop provides a unique opportunity to work in small practical groups under the close supervision of equine specialists, including two of the only five UK recognised diploma holders in equine sports medicine.
