Veterinary Thermal Imaging (VTI)has announced its sponsorship of Equine Management and Training, which works to back, school and re-educate horses from all walks of life – particularly ex-racehorses.
Veterinary Thermal Imaging (VTI) is delighted to announce its sponsorship of Equine Management and Training.
VTI, the UK’s largest all species thermography service, first started working with Fred and Rowena Cook at Equine Management and Training (EMT) two years ago, and they have regularly worked together since.
Equine Management and Training works with a range of horses, helping to back, school and re-educate horses from all walks of life, but mostly these equines take the form of ex-racehorses.
In addition to providing a training service, Mr and Mrs Cook also help owners of ex-racehorses through EMT and via the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) helpline.
VTI managing director Helen Morrell said: “When Rowena made contact, her thoughts on ex-racehorses really struck a chord with me, as my first horse was an ex-racehorse. I liked the philosophy they used with the horses at Equine Management and Training, so I went to show them how VTI might fit into this.
“We looked at a few horses and the camera showed exactly what they knew to be the problem, or what they suspected. In fact, the thermal images were so conclusive that one horse didn’t require further x-rays, which saved the owner about £500.”
She added: “Our relationship has developed from these early days, with Equine Management and Training providing a training base for VTI’s thermographers, and we’re now working more closely through sponsorship.”
