The Speakers

Dr Pat Harris is director of science at the Waltham Equine Science Group which is at the forefront of many of the advances in knowledge of equine nutrition and metabolic lameness. She is a Professor of Equine Studies at Virginia State University and a European Specialist in Veterinary Clinical and Comparative Nutrition. Dr Harris lectures all over the world on Nutrition as it affects the health, welfare, behaviour and performance. She is the author of numerous scientific papers. As a rider she has taken part in competitions throughout Europe and has also been involved with the veterinary care of the horse at several three-day events.

Dr Andrew Hemmings is Equine Neuroanatomist and Principal Lecturer in Animal Science at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester. His main expertise and interest is in brain function in relation to stereotypy performance, brain function in relation to learning and the genetic factors underlying horse behaviour. This paves the way for a deeper insight into the functioning of other anatomical structures and their influence on performance.

John Killingbeck has a particular interest in competition horses, with a special emphasis on orthopaedics and lameness. As Official Veterinary Surgeon he has travelled to three Olympic Games and several European and World Championships. John now acts as an FEI Veterinary Delegate at several international competitions. His knowledge and experience of lameness diagnosis, and in particular foot problems, is widely recognised. John is an examiner for the Worshipful Company of Farriers and has also acted as an examiner for the RCVS. He lectures on a regular basis at the Royal Agricultural College here in Cirencester and makes regular contributions to various equestrian publications.

Dr Jeremy Naylor graduating from Veterinary School at the University of Bristol and spending time in equine practice, Jeremy spent several years at Washington State University gaining an advanced training in equine exercise physiology and internal medicine. After completing his PhD at Bristol on his return to the UK, he worked for the Valley Equine Hospital in Lambourn before joining the champion National Hunt trainer Martin Pipe for two seasons. Here, Jeremy received an insight into the art of training winners while working as resident vet to the stable. This was followed by several years back at the University of Bristol as Director of the Equine Sports Medicine Centre using the high-speed treadmill and state-of-the-art facilities for poor performance investigation, and as Director of the degree programme in Equine Science. Jeremy now spends most of his time endeavouring to put his wealth of knowledge and practical experience to good use training racehorses at Cleeve Stables on Salisbury Plain and helping competitive riders get the best from their horses. Top human athletes are commonly trained using the benefits of science, so why not horses?

Dr Svend Kold is a consultant specialising in Equine Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a world leader in his field and has published extensively. He lectures regularly at congresses both in the UK and Europe and is co-author of "Clinical Radiology of the Horse". As a racing enthusiast Dr Kold is Senior Veterinary Surgeon at Ascot Racecourse. Other work includes inspecting equine hospitals for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and attending County and High Court in England, Ireland and Denmark as a legal expert witness.

Haydn Price is consultant farrier to the BEF and Team Farrier to the British Dressage and Show Jumping Teams.With a particular interest in performance horses he has developed a specialist Equine Referral Centre. In 2004 Haydn developed the Equinalysis Gait Analysis system, now used by World Class Performance to assess locomotion. Haydn is a regular contributor to publications and research programmes, he also lectures internationally within Europe, America and Mexico.

Dr Lesley Young specializes in equine cardiology with particular interest in the effects of general anesthesia on the equine heart and clinical cardiology of athletic horses. She runs a referral cardiology and sports medicine service at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket. She obtained her RCVS Diploma in veterinary Cardiology in 2000 and was given RCVS specialist status in 2006. Since December 2005, she has provided an ambulatory equine cardiology referral service to general practitioners throughout the UK and Europe.

 


About Cirencester.

Cirencester is a beautiful market town well worth a visit. The town contains many interesting buildings spanning several centuries. With no high rise buildings, the highest is the cathedral-like St. John Baptist church which dominates the market square where on Fridays and Mondays there is a traditional market. Within walking distance of the town centre there is access to the fantastic Bathurst Estate and Cirencester Park.

The Royal Agricultural College was founded by Henry, 4th Earl Bathurst in 1845. Housed in beautiful traditional buildings with excellent facilities it is the perfect location for the fourth Horses Inside Out Conference.

If you are considering coming to the conference and would like to bring friends or family, this is an ideal location for a weekend away.
