INTRODUCTION TO THE NATIONAL EQUINE FORUM
The 26th National Equine Forum (NEF) will take place in London on the 8th March 2018 (9:45am-4:45pm) but don’t worry if you don’t have a ticket because for the first time, you can WATCH ONLINE for FREE.
The National Equine Forum is presided over by HRH The Princess Royal and has grown and developed since 1992 to provide an annual opportunity for leaders from across the equestrian and racing sectors to come together to discuss the future shaping of the UK equine industry.
Over the past 25 years, NEF has become a key annual industry event that has more than 200 delegates attending however, to date, attendance has been by invitation only. This year, everyone can JOIN the Forum ONLINE FOR FREE.
At the Thoroughbred Health Network (THN), we endorse any attempt to facilitate two-way communication between industry leaders and those at a grassroots level. And, it was at the 2017 National Equine Forum, that the THN was launched as a national horse health initiative.
Georgina Crossman, Administrator of the National Equine Forum said:
“The popularity of the Forum is consistently growing, and we are conscious that for several years now there has been a waiting list for tickets. By introducing live streaming we can reach so many more people and even more effectively achieve our objective to provide a platform for impartial discussion and the sharing of knowledge”.
There are many ways you can get involved with the Forum:-
As always, this year’s agenda covers many sectors of the equine industry. Nick Rust, CEO of the British Horseracing Authority, will be speaking about equine welfare in British racing, Stewart Everett will be providing an update on the Central Equine Database, Dr. Sue Dyson will be revealing the latest research into rider weight and Jim Green will be giving the Memorial Lecture on equine emergency rescue. There will be discussion about what’s new in equestrian safety and potential solutions to challenges facing small equestrian businesses.
Please note that the full programme is not published prior to the event but the 2018 NEF speakers can be viewed here.
