In conjunction with title sponsor, Merial Animal Health, the Rutgers Equine Science Center will host “Horses 2017: The Best of the Best”. An educational program last hosted in 2009, we aim to bring the most recent updates in the equine industry to the general public.
Over the course of two days, attendees will have eight session slots in which they can choose from 26 different workshop options. The March 18 morning keynote addresses will be delivered by Wendy Williams, world-renowned scientific journalist and author of The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion, whose work has appeared in the Boston Globe, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times. On Sunday March 19, Dr. Jeff Thomason from the University of Guelph, Canada, will present his latest research on accessing footing surfaces from the horse’s perspective.
Featured speakers have been selected by the Center to speak on a variety of topics throughout the weekend, including basic veterinary care, equine behavior, equine dentistry, footing, shoeing, equine osteoarthritis, diet fads, and manure & pasture management.
