The American Association of Equine Practitioners is conducting its 53rd Annual Convention Dec. 1-5 in Orlando, Fla. Although the convention is geared toward equine veterinarians, there’s something in it for horse owners too.
As a bonus, there will also be a special demonstration by Olympian David O’Connor. Titled “David O’Connor: A Revealing Look Into the Makings of a Champion,” the demonstration will give attendees a look into O’Connor’s past experiences and amazing accomplishments while he reveals the horsemanship skills needed to handle both the green horse and experienced horse.
The Healthy Horses Workshop agenda is:
• Equine Dental Care: What Every Horse Owner Should Know – Rob Arnott, BSc, DVM
• Acupuncture & Chiropractic: The Science Behind It and How It Helps Your Horse (demonstration) – Heather Heiderich, DVM
• How Horses Learn: The Science of Natural Horsemanship – Jennifer MacLeay, DVM, DACVIM, Ph.D.
