Hello and welcome back to my blog on the Horses Inside Out conference 2020 - Anatomy In Action.
Today I wanted to share with you a little bit about the presentation stands that were available to browse at the conference.
It’s tempting to write a piece on each of the stands, but that would make this blog run into many more parts, so I thought I would instead let you know who was exhibiting and their details so if you want to find out more about them you can do your own research.
When arriving on the first morning of the conference, and after receiving your conference pack, there was an opportunity to help yourself to a beverage and a snack and browse the presentation stands.
The stands were in the main hall and there were lots of chances during the weekend in between speakers to chat with people on the presentation stands should you wish as well as browse their stands, see their products and many also had giveaways and competitions to enter :)
The stands included:

Last but by certainly no means least, there was of course also the opportunity to chat to the Horses Inside Out Team and to purchase Gillian’s books, DVD’s, art and models. As well as find out more about the courses and demonstrations that Horses Inside Out run.
Gillian launched a new interactive book at the conference (which I just had to purchase of course).
This is a book with accompanying online videos all about the Sacroiliac Ligaments and the Iliospoas Muscle Group.
In Gillian’s creative and intuitive style she has created models of the horse’s pelvis bones and the ligaments and muscles supporting them and captured them from all angles and labelled them which has created this fantastic ‘3D’ learning tool.
Also excitingly, this model was available to view at the conference in the Anatomy Exhibition (see my previous blog)
I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog.
The next one will be the penultimate blog in this series, where I would like to share with you the Scientific Poster Presentation Area which was available to browse at the conference.
Thank you once again to Horses Inside Out for allowing me access to their professional images.
