scottish welfare conference

Horse owners across Scotland are invited to the annual Scottish Equine Welfare Conference (11 May) which will be held at the Weipers Centre Equine Hospital, Glasgow and will this year focus on ‘Keeping the Modern Equine’.

Covering a range of issues such as equine obesity, management and care, delayed death and recognising pain – the conference features speakers from across the industry and is set to be a fascinating and insightful day for anyone involved with horses at any level.

The annual conference is a collaboration between The British Horse Society Scotland, The Donkey Sanctuary, World Horse Welfare, SSPCA and the Scottish Government and has become a key date in the Scottish equestrian calendar.

British Horse Society National Manager for Scotland, Helene Mauchlen, said:

“The conference is a fantastic event which provides a whole host of practical and thought-provoking information to support horse owners, sharers and loaners in making the right decisions for their horses. In Scotland, the biggest welfare challenges our equines face include obesity, over-rugging, incorrect management and delayed death which are all issues that can be addressed through education.

“I’d urge anyone who has responsibility for a horse, pony or donkey to join us at the conference on 11th May.  We guarantee a warm welcome and we are sure your equine will be very grateful!”

Attendance is priced at £35 and a full programme and booking form can be found at:
