Internationally renowned specialist veterinary cardiologist, Dr Lesley Young, is to give an evening talk to equine enthusiasts at Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus.
During the course of what promises to be a most practical and entertaining lecture, Lesley will dispel the myths surrounding equine cardiology with her straight forward and logical approach to the horse’s heart and cardiovascular system. By understanding basic principles, attendees will be able to recognise the commonest abnormalities of the equine athlete’s heart and put equine cardiac murmurs and arrhythmias into perspective.
A leading expert in her field, Lesley is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons recognised specialist. Having made significant contributions to applied clinical research into equine cardiovascular function and sports horse cardiology, she has published widely.
Throughout the UK and Europe, Lesley provides an ambulatory equine cardiology referral service to veterinary practitioners.
Head of the University’s School of Animal and Equine Sciences, Heather Owen said: “We are delighted that Lesley is coming to Brackenhurst campus to allow us to benefit from her immense experience and expertise as an equine cardiologist. The School is increasing its research alongside its teaching in subjects such as equine health, training and performance. We are keenly anticipating what promises to be a most enlightening and informative lecture.”
The lecture is the first in a series which Hoyland Event will run through the winter months. The second – “Maintaining Soundness and Performance in the Sport Horse” given by Olympic farrier Haydn Price – will follow in late January 2013.
Advance tickets are available at £15 per person. Light refreshments are provided.
