2023 was another busy year!
February brought a new conference: the Horses Inside Out conference organized by Gillian Higgins. This is a remarkable conference for paraprofessionals with lectures from across the equine spectrum. The knowledge in the room was remarkable. Due to some scheduling issues, the boys came along!
March brought the Finnish Equine Conference in Helsinki as the key note speaker. Another visit to Helsinki is always a pleasure and both new and old colleagues and friends were there. A superbly organized congress held jointly with small animal sessions, it was a wonderful weekend.
In May, a quick trip to Munich to give two foal talks for the MSD Expertise conference meant time with German friends and colleagues and Vets with Horsepower member Hedi Georg who works for MSD.
June brought a new undertaking which was involvement in a Boehringer Ingelheim (A long time staunch supporter of Vets with Horsepower) workshop, and then Vets with Horsepower set off for Scandinavia!! (See below).
October was a full day of live webinars on equine orthopaedics for Horses Inside Out- which necessitated some bribery for little boys to stay quiet and off camera!
The year also involved a new adventure which was to create and deliver an online lecture on the equine stifle for The Equine Practice Company. This is a new project, largely spearheaded by the company and Dr Sue Dyson which provides online lectures covering the entirely of equine lameness diagnosis. It was an honour to be asked!
