World Horse Welfare is giving you the chance to learn from a number of equine experts at our Spring Talk later this month.

Polework

Members of the public will be able to gain in-depth knowledge about several horse-related subjects such: - as worming, insurance, farriery, nutrition and polework at our Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton on Tuesday 29 May 2012.

We have a number of guest speakers at the event which include: -

• Vet Andy Williamson from Uplands Way Vets in Diss, Attleborough and Cromer

• John Blake from Breckland Farriers

• World Horse Welfare Field Officer Jacko Jackson

• Nutritionist Jane Van Lennop B.Sc, M.Sc, BHSI, N.P.S.D with her ‘Bucket to Barrow’ lecture

• Sarah Stoneham BVSc, Cert, ESM, MRCVS with a demo about worming

Horses currently undergoing rehabilitation at World Horse Welfare’s Hall Farm will also be used for a demonstration by some of the centre’s grooms about the significance of polework. Additionally, Jacko Jackson will talk about the role and importance of a Field Officer for our charity.

The event starts at 7pm with tickets costing £5 (including refreshments).
