RB Equestrian and BEV 2018 Spring Talk May 2018

They’re back!  RB Equestrian's Spring Series of Free Evening Events run in conjunction with Buckingham Equine Vets.

We’re delighted to be once again running our free evening events.  This year we’re mixing things up a bit but they’ll be as informative and interesting as ever.  And, we have some fabulous guest speakers who are giving up their time for free to help spread their knowledge to us.

Last year we almost ran out of space so we will have to limit numbers in 2018.  Please make sure you sign up as soon as possible so we can reserve you a place and ensure we have enough teas and coffees!

The next in our series of Spring Talks in conjunction with Buckingham Equine Vets is fast approaching.

We are so lucky to have some of the leaders in equine veterinary medicine give up their time to speak to us for free at these talks and this one is no exception.

On 29th May we will have Professor Josh Slater of the Royal Veterinary College talking about Exotic Equine Diseases – ‘The Threat from Abroad’, which promises to be an eye-opening over-view of some of the new risks threatening our UK equine population.

Professor Slater has a pretty impressive resume: he is a past president of the British Equine Veterinary Association, the European College of Equine Internal Medicine and the Federation of European Equine Veterinary Associations. He was biosecurity advisor to the Hong Kong Government for the 2008 Equestrian Olympic Games, was the National Technical Official responsible for biosecurity at the London 2012 Equestrian Olympic Games and was a biosecurity advisor for the World Equestrian Games 2014.

We’ll also have Dr Philip Ivens speaking about Strangles, the dreaded word that spreads fear amongst horse-owners on busy yards or who go out competing.  Don’t miss this opportunity to find out more about this highly contagious, infectious disease and why maybe you shouldn’t ‘panic at the yard’.

Spaces are limited so do please let us know if you would like to come.  You can do this by email to info@rbequestrian.co.uk , by phone on 01908 365335 or use the sign up sheet in-store.

7pm for a 7.30pm start – make sure you get here in time to have a cup of something and a cake or biscuit (which are also free!)

The talks are normally finished by 9.30pm with a short refreshment/toilet break in the middle.
