Equine practitioners working with sports horses are under considerable pressure to keep the horses under their care competing at the highest level at all times. Furthermore, evaluating poorly performing competition horses can be a daunting task because the clinical signs caused by different conditions may be very similar, leaving vets wondering where to start their investigation.

The world-renowned speakers will provide a broad overview on the most important topics in sports horse medicine and orthopedics and will cover the following subjects through highly-illustrated and interactive presentations and by sharing many practical tips and tricks with the attendees:

Latest Developments in Orthopedic Therapies - Polyacrylamides, Pro-stride, Resveratrol, Stem Cell Therapy, PrP, IRAP etc.
A Novel Perspective on Overground Endoscopy
Applications for Objective Lameness Evaluation Analysis in Sports Horses
New Ways of using Hematology & Biochemistry in Sports Horses
Lameness Examination - When things get complicated; Reliability / Repeatability of Blocks, Multiple Site / Limb Lameness
Which Heart Murmurs are relevant in Sports Horses
Practical Equine Rehabilitation - A review of Available Modalities
Exercise Testing - Identifying Subclinical Problems in Sports Horses
Contentious Issues in Sports Horse Pre-Purchase Examination
Feeding the Competitive Athlete
In the afternoons , 7 hours of practical sessions will allow attendees to further their practical skills on live horses in small groups (2-4 vets per ultrasound ). Each attendee will rotate through the following practical sessions supervised by the specialists:

Distal Limb Ultrasound - Attendees to choose area to examine
Flexor Tendons & Suspensory Ligament or
Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath & Fetlock or
