March 26th, 2014-03-20

Equine Guelph is proud to announce the launch of a new audio podcast on their popular web site. Equine Guelph has teamed up with Trot Radio's Norm Borg and SSG Gloves to produce Research Radio, an online podcast updating you on the latest equine research by scientists at the Ontario Veterinary College and University of Guelph. It will highlight the cutting edge discoveries being made, and explain what they mean for the health and welfare of your horse.


Equine Guelph director Gayle Ecker says, “Our partners at Ontario Veterinary College are producing ground breaking research designed to improve the health, welfare and safety of the equine athlete. The more widely we can publicize their findings the more likely their work will be put to use to find concrete solutions as a means to that end.”

The results of the study could lead the way to newer, improved methods of therapy and preventative farrier techniques.


To listen to the first podcast, simply log on to Research Radio.
