The latest ideas in diagnostic imaging, the impact of conformation on movement, assessing your business and proper examination of the equine foot will be important aspects of the program for next winter’s seventh annual International Hoof-Care Summit.
The dates are Feb. 2 to 5, 2010, in Cincinnati, Ohio, centrally located within a day’s driving for farriers and equine vets in 23 states. The city’s international airport also offers easy air travel for both North American and European attendees.
More than 40 speakers will highlight next winter’s event, which features the theme of “Hoof-Care Strategies: Tried, True And New.” Featuring 76 hours of non-stop, highly intensive information spread over 4 days, this unique footcare educational experience features five time-tested styles of learning.
Not only does the Summit deliver the latest thinking in the hoof-care field from an all-star lineup of farriers, equine veterinarians and hoof-care researchers, but this event also offers the new year’s first glimpse of new products during three uninterrupted Trade Show sessions.
Harry Werner, the president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, will offer two in-depth presentations. The equine veterinarian owns a private internal medicine and emergency care clinic that specializes in lameness issues at North Gramby, Conn. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, he and his staff provide top quality patient care by focusing on owner education, equine wellness and purchase examinations in a practice where 85% of the horses are English sport horses.
