David chats with with his friend Prof Lars Roepstorff
The survey results are here – over 1000 pairs of riding gloves were rated in the survey.
David is at London International Horse Show and catches up with his old friend Professor Lars Roepstorff. Lars is the International Surfaces Expert for the FEI.
They discuss Lars’ life, career and relationship/love of horses, where science and the thirst for care and well-being for horses led him as a vet and research scientist.
This is a fascinating, warm and eye-opening interview. There is a focus on the intricacies of equestrian surfaces and what they are doing to ensure the best surfaces for our horses. What can you do to create the best working surface of your arena for your horse? They also discuss barefoot and competing barefoot horses at the highest levels.
Apologies for the background noise – this interview was conducted LIVE at the London International Horse Show, Olympia can be very loud!
