Story by: Jackie Bellamy Zions

Best Horse Practices Summit logoEquine Guelph is very excited to be attending the third annual Best Horse Practices Summit at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine this October 19 – 20. “We are looking forward to attending this evidence-based conference and networking with industry professionals sharing the same philosophies regarding the well-being of horses,” says Equine Guelph director Gayle Ecker.

The Summit aims to strengthen links between equine research and horsemanship circles by highlighting the practical and academic strategies that make horses’ lives better. Attendees will be in good company right from the start, with renowned equine behaviourist Stephen Budiansky delivering the keynote address. The author of The Nature of Horses likes to point out: “science is now beginning to allow the horse to tell its own story. And indeed I would argue that at this late date in the shared history of man and horse it is only the objective tools of science that can sort out what millenniums of tradition, lore, and wishful thinking have sometimes muddled.”

Equine Guelph shares this mission of separating myth from science so horse owners can make informed decisions regarding their horse’s health and welfare. “In addition to absorbing the abundance of information, Equine Guelph will have a spot on the tradeshow floor to showcase its powerful online learning programs including,” says Ecker. “We look forward to introducing our programs to this valued audience and welcome discussion from like-minded associations to develop future partnerships."
