Experts Meet to Tackle Equine Lameness Research
I was thrilled to learn that the AAEP Foundation hosted a Lameness Research Meeting and Panel in Fort Collins, Colorado this last August. Twenty-four researchers and lameness experts from around the world met to prioritize future equine lameness research needs. "The group also explored specific questions about the direction and cost of future lameness projects. "
Why would I be thrilled about this? - Because they are called to develop strategic priorities to effectively and economically address important diseases that cause lameness in our beloved horses.
We lost a horse to lameness a couple of years back :(
This research meeting and panel would not have been possible without the support of the following sponsors: AQHA Foundation, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, IDEXX Laboratories, and Morris Animal Foundation.

This cooperative effort is helping to identify priorities for the equine industry and will benefit the owner, veterinarian, supporting industries and, most importantly, the horse.
Kudos to these wonderful sponsors
