In early August, the American Association of Equine Practitioners hosted a meeting in Fort Collins, Colo., to share the latest published and non–published information on equine lameness issues. The event featured 13 brief abstract presentations and an in-depth discussion on research needs that was conducted with a blue ribbon panel of lameness researchers.
“The goal of this meeting was to share collective knowledge, current and future plans among multi-disciplinary equine lameness researchers and to help develop a strategic plan to most effectively and economically address important scientific issues regarding diseases that cause lameness,” says equine veterinarian and conference coordinator Nat White. “We hope to develop a plan for collaboration and identify specific areas in lameness research that are priorities during the next 5 to 10 years.”
