The 11th International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology (ICEEP) will take place from the 26th June to 1st July 2022 in Uppsala, Sweden.
The first ICEEP conference took place in Oxford in 1982 and has run every 4 years since then. Fortunately, this was one fixture COVID didn’t manage to prevent taking place and its exciting that we are able to hold the conference this summer in Sweden.
As a young scientist my first experience of ICEEP was the 2nd conference which was held in San Diego, USA in 1986. I then attended the every ICEEP since with the exception of the 1994 conference in Australia due to being in the US with horses as part of the Atlanta 96 Olympic Heat & Humidity Research Project.
From 2002 to 2014 I was a Member of the ICEEP International Committee and Chair between 2006 and 2014. My legacy was to organise the first ICEEP in South Africa at Spier Winery outside Cape Town in 2010.
These are the papers that we will be presenting at the conference:
- Stirrup and rein forces do not show left-right differences in advanced dressage riders and horses – Marlin, Fisher-M, Fisher-D & MacKechnie-Guire
- Are faults in International Showjumping associated with fence design? – Williams, Pills & Marlin
- A novel 4-dimensional imaging technique to track back shape changes in exercising horses – Marlin, Ward, McKeever, Clayton & Roepstorff
- Stirrup choice and use within horse rider falls – Williams & Marlin
- Use and Repeatability of 3D Light-Scanning to Assess External Profile and Symmetry in Horses – Tabor, Marlin & Williams
