On January 19 & 20, 2013, the Horse Council of B.C. is pleased to present the 3rd Annual Equine Education Conference being held at the Kamloops Convention Centre in Kamloops, B.C. This two day event features eight keynote speakers talking about all things equine.
Dr. Dennis Sigler from Texas A&M is one of the keynote speakers for the 2013 Conference. Dennis has been an AQHA-approved judge for over 25 years and has judged in nearly every state and in five foreign countries.
He is responsible for extension and research at Texas A&M in the area of exercise physiology, conditioning and nutritional management of the equine athlete.
Conditioning of our horses is often dictated by tradition, sometimes completely ignored, and mostly practiced the same as it has been for the past century. Every trainer has a slightly different method.
Advanced technologies and extensive research has given us insight into horses physiological capacities like never before. But the importance in keeping horses sound for whatever type of performance is to condition them to do the type of exercise they will be asked for in actual competition.
The horse basically should never be asked to perform at a level in competition that they had never had to do at home. Learn how to get and keep your horse fit and sound!
