Following on from Dr. Kieran O’Brien’s talk, Dr. Gillian Tabor will discuss ways to support the maintenance of your horse during increased periods of stabling.
Whilst appreciating that factors such as keeping your horses stabled due to constraints from yard owners, land management, or your horse’s injury are not generally ideal.
