Join your colleagues for three days of practical and insightful continuing education in the heart of horse country—Lexington, Ky.—when the AAEP presents its 2020 Summer Focus Conference & Labs. The meeting will feature two tracks: Podiatry and Sport Horse Pre-Purchase Exam.
The Podiatry track will help you achieve best results when dealing with foot-related lameness by merging farrier science and veterinary medicine related to the foot. Under the tutelage of respected veterinary podiatrists and farriers, you’ll acquire the latest information on therapeutic trimming and shoeing techniques and lower limb biomechanics. On the final day, watch the experts demonstrate venography and tenotomy, quarter crack repair and glue-on shoes, performance horse shoeing and racehorse shoeing.
During the Sport Horse Pre-Purchase Exam track, leading practitioners in the field will instill the components of an effective pre-purchase exam for your sport horse clients. Topics will include dynamic gait analysis, cardio-pulmonary evaluation, ophthalmic exam, upper airway endoscopy, spine radiography, laboratory tests, and primary and ancillary diagnostics. A series of four one-hour labs on the final day will allow you to practice much of the material presented during lectures.
Registration opens in early spring.
