Equine Science Center Announces Horse Management Seminar Topic


“Racehorse/Sport Horse Care and Rehabilitation” is the overarching theme of the upcoming Horse Management Seminar hosted by the Equine Science Center and Rutgers Cooperative Extension. The seminar, scheduled from 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, will feature presentations by several equine experts.

“This year, we selected a topic that we have not covered during any of the previous Horse Management Seminars,” Dr. Carey Williams, Extension Equine Specialist and Associate Director of Extension for the Equine Science Center, said. “Whether you have racehorses, sport horses or just like riding horses, there will be something for everyone. We have so many veterinary experts in the New Jersey area, I am very excited to be able to have them share their expertise with you.”

Dr. Williams continued, “Our goal for this workshop is to bring in the leading veterinary and academic experts in each of these topic areas. This includes caring for the racehorse, managing the sport horse, rehabilitating horses, transitioning careers between race and sport, and feeding for different types of exercise. We will also highlight some of the current, and future, research from Rutgers graduate students conducting equine research.”

The complete program, registration information, and seminar brochure are posted on the Equine Science Center website at esc.rutgers.edu, as well as the registration site at: http://bit.ly/2020HorseManagement.
