26 Lectures by 17 Lecturers plus Expert Panel Discussion.
The Best Equine Therapists (whether vet or body therapist or hoof trimmer or rider) are those who can heal, not just treat.
To this end, equine therapists should continually seek new information and develop better ways to overcome the occupational problems suffered by domestic horses. It can always be done a better way. Learning should never cease.
The best therapists don’t just strive to learn everything possible about their own particular modality, but they also seek a working knowledge of the whole equine body. This is not to become an expert at everything; rather to be able to recognise when problems originate beyond their field of speciality, so they can effectively refer to relevant experts.
Whether you are a veterinarian, a body therapist or a hoof therapist (or indeed a combination of these), this conference provided the opportunity not only to learn more about your corner of the horse, but to learn more about the rest of the grand equine design. So, you can become a better therapist.
The Proceedings book resulted from the recent, highly successful, Bowker Lectures held at Hawkesbury NSW. It contains invaluable information whether you attended the conference or not.
