Beyond The Wire will offer a free seminar, “Training for Injury Prevention,” for licensed Maryland trainers, assistant trainers, and owners on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at Laurel Park.
Dr. Sue Stover, a professor and director of the JD Wheat Veterinary Orthopedic Research Laboratory at the University of California-Davis, will cover how injuries develop, why catastrophic injuries occur, and factors that can be managed to reduce the risk of injury. In addition, Dr. Amy Burk from the University of Maryland will speak briefly on nutrition and ulcers in horses.
“I am very excited that we are hosting our second educational seminar since Beyond The Wire was launched almost a year and a half ago,” said Jessica Hammond, who administrates Beyond The Wire. “I hope to see a lot of trainers in attendance as they make the daily decisions for their horses’ training and care regimens. The seminar should give trainers the latest information on effective training and injury detection techniques which will not only enhance their horses’ performance, but gives information on ethical considerations in training as well.”
Lunch will be served at the event, which will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the International Lounge on the third floor of the clubhouse.
