Want to find out more about what is going on in the equestrian world? Come and join us at Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst Campus on Friday 8 July 2016 for a day of talks and demonstrations on the theme of 'The Sustainable Equine'.
We have an exciting programme of speakers who are leaders in their respective fields, and will have additional information and research findings in areas including horse management, training, performance and welfare, and developing more environmentally friendly approaches.
We will be covering issues that relate to horses and ponies in all spheres of life, from those rescued from abandonment and neglect to elite performance horses. The event is free, but we will be asking for donations to support the valuable work of equine welfare charities.
