Qatar Equine Foot Conference 2018

Thursday 3 May 2018 – Saturday 5 May 2018, 08.00AM – 07.30PM Qatar National Convention Centre, Ar-Rayyan, Qatar
Organised by Al Shaqab

The event will be the first conference in Qatar specifically dedicated to education about the horse foot and lower leg. The presentations will focus on the form and function of the foot so that owners and trainers will be able to make management decisions on how to care for the hooves. Farriers and veterinarians will learn evidence-based strategies to successfully manage a myriad of hoof problems in foals, horses in training, and breeding horses. Common foot ailments involving limb imbalance, foal podiatry, laminitis, and correct horseshoeing methodology will be presented. In addition, there will be lectures and demonstrations by internationally renowned experts. Equine product companies from around the world will be offered product booth space, and so there will be a marketplace within spectacular performance arenas during the event. Hopefully, this event will be the first of many educational seminars hosted by Al Shaqab and the Equine Veterinary Medical Center, as we believe that events of this caliber are an effective way to introduce our facilities and professional capabilities to the equine world right here in Qatar.
