For the first time since it began, the International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology (ICEEP) will open its doors to the general public who will have privileged access to the latest research and techniques on getting the best from the performance horse.
This year’s conference ‘Winning Ways’ presents an unparalleled opportunity to hear first-hand from leading UK and international experts in performance, health, biomechanics and rehabilitation who will share the latest findings and knowledge with riders, trainers, vets and physiotherapists.
And with London 2012 kicking off just over a month later, some of the experts working with national Olympic teams will be joining the prestigious speaker panel allowing delegates to benefit from some Olympic magic themselves.
The packed schedule includes dedicated programmes for carriage drivers, showjumpers and eventers, endurance, dressage, racehorse owners and trainers, physiotherapists and veterinary surgeons.
The panel of international guest speakers includes Narelle Stubbs, official physiotherapist for the Australian Olympic Equestrian Team, she said: “I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s ICEEP conference, particularly as it has been opened up to an audience beyond the scientific community.
“Myself and the rest of the speakers are looking forward immensely to sharing the latest knowledge and research so that as many people as possible can benefit from scientific and medical advances in equine health and we hope as many people as possible are able to join us at Aintree.”
Horse feed specialist Dodson & Horrell is one of the event’s main sponsors and Dr Teresa Hollands R.Nutr, Senior Nutritionist and advisor to Team GBR, will be sharing some of the newest information on feeding the performance horse.
Dr Hollands feels passionately that knowledge is there to be shared. She says: “With the work we have been doing with Team GBR combined with our experiences over the last 25 years, and of course the Olympics on the horizon, this conference is particularly timely.
“Not only do we want to use the results to support our elite horses but also to provide an information legacy for all horse owners and riders. We are really proud to be part of this unique event, and we look forward to seeing you there!”
ICEEP ‘Winning Ways’ will take place on 16-17 June at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool.
