Veterinary product specialist Dechra will host a series of free roadshows this autumn focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and management of common problems when keeping the sports horse on the road.

The three CPD events will be held at:

  • Wetherby Racecourse (October 13)
  • Chelmsford Racecourse (November 10)
  • The Racecourse, Newbury (November 25)

Phil Cramp will lead all three events. Guest speakers include Jonathan Anderson and Richard Reardon in Wetherby, Ceri Sherlock in Chelmsford, and Henry O’Neill and Julian Wain in Newbury.

The roadshows begin with registration and a buffet at 7pm followed by talks on keeping horses on the road, and the navicular bone and bisphosphonates: old dog and new tricks. They will be followed by a panel discussion and then a question and answer session.

Dechra brand manager Emma Jennings said: “Sport horses are commonly placed under great strain, which all too often can result in poor performance. These CPD events will involve a set of short lectures by highly experienced experts in their field, outlining the diagnosis and management of common problems seen in the sport horse followed by an interactive case-based discussion.

“These events are targeted at veterinary professionals including vets, nurses and equine physiotherapists and anyone attending the events can also bring their own cases and radiographs to discuss if they wish and get expert opinion on diagnosis and treatment.”

Limited places are available at each event. To book a place on “Keeping the sports horse on the road: a practical guide to some common problems, diagnosis, treatment and management”, register in advance at www.dechra.co.uk/events

Attending one of the roadshows awards delegates two hours towards their CPD requirements.
