AAEP Healthy Horses Workshop to Feature Olympian David O???Connor

The AAEP's 2007 Annual Convention which will feature a Healthy Horses Workshop

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.

On Dec. 1, the AAEP will host a “Healthy Horses Workshop,” an event designed for non-veterinarians interested in equine health care. The workshop will be at the Osceola Heritage Park Kissimmee Valley Livestock Show Pavilion in Kissimmee, Fla. The event will feature leading veterinary experts delivering information on  the latest news and advances in equine health.

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
