Building on the resounding success of the previous two international conferences in 2012 and 2014, leading organisation The Saddle Research Trust (SRT) has confirmed the date for the next global gathering of leading researchers to discuss the complex relationship between horse, saddle and rider. The conference will held on Saturday 8th December 2018 at Nottingham University’s state-of-the-art De Vere Conference Centre, (UK) and is set to deliver an impressive line-up of influential speakers from across the globe.
Entitled “Horse, rider, saddlery interactions: Welfare & performance” the packed programme will focus on the latest research, from new techniques in equine pain recognition to rider posture and equine biomechanics, offering a unique insight to progress in key areas. Eminent speakers have already confirmed their attendance including world-renowned veterinarian, author and researcher, Professor Hilary Clayton and leading equine orthopaedic expert, Dr Sue Dyson.
The public conference, which is generously supported by World Horse Welfare and Wow Saddles, has a capacity for up to 550 delegates and is set to be the biggest and best yet.
For the first time, the public conference will be followed by a Gala Awards Dinner with a host of celebrity guests. Tickets for the evening dinner, which promises to be a fun and entertaining event to round off a busy day of learning and debate, are available to purchase separately.
Conference early bird tickets are on sale now, with half price savings available until 31st December 2017. Tickets can be purchased securely via Eventbrite.
