The annual Alltech-Hartpury Equine Student Conference will take place on May 2, at University Centre Hartpury, Gloucester.
Now in its eighth year, the conference aims to provide higher education students with experience of writing and submitting an abstract and going through the review and revisions process, through to delivering a theatre presentation to a full conference audience or producing a scientific poster to present.
Allowing students to present to other students makes what can be an overwhelming experience less intimidating. The conference has grown in popularity, with delegates representing colleges and universities from all over the UK and has even attracted submissions from international institutes.
This year the conference is encouraging submissions on Equine Behaviour and Welfare; Equine Business Management; Breeding, Genetics and Stud Management; Equine Health and Therapy; Equine Nutrition and Feeding, and Rider Performance.
Alltech will once again provide the prizes for the best oral and poster presentations.
The Lifeforce Range of all-natural, daily digestive aid supplements from Alltech is designed to benefit horses of every stage of life, from breeding stock to pleasure and performance animals.
