We’ve had a lovely rush of last minute bookings for The Functional Hoof Conference! It seems that horse people from around Australia and New Zealand (and even Scandinavia) are super keen to hear from our illustrious presenters.
We have leading researchers and clinicians from universities around the world coming to Daylesford next week to share their knowledge. Teaching and horses are their twin passions. And they will deliver to a highly receptive and focused audience in the historic Daylesford Town Hall.
For vets, farriers, trimmers, dressage riders, equine therapists and performance horse people – there’s going to be plenty of stimulating science delivered on the conference floor. Prof Lars Roepstorff talking about the success of the Swedish harness horses and their approach to hoof care and training. Prof Hilary Clayton on digital kinematics and biomechanics. Top farriers and trimmers in a respectful conference discussion about the different techniques of trimming. Plus plenty of animated argument and debate in the cafes, bars and restaurants around Daylesford after hours.
There’s still time! Ticket Sales close at midnight on Friday 31st October. You can book for the entire four days (student discounts still available). Or buy a single day conference ticket. Or perhaps you’d like to come to the conference dinner on Saturday night to hear about Dr Brian Hampson’s research on different trimming methods and see the glorious presentation of his work with Przewalski horses in Hungary?
