ISELP 2019

Saturday 13th April saw the final day of this year's ISELP (International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology) conference. The three day course which started on Thursday 11th April, focused this year on treatment and management of some of the most common conditions of the foot and pastern that practitioners deal with in everyday practice. The course culminated with a practical session held at BELL EQUINE, following two days of lectures and seminars from some of the world's leading equine veterinary specialists at the Kent Event Centre.

Formed in the United States, under the direction of Dr Jean-Marie Denoix, ISELP focuses on the problem of equine lameness. The aim of ISELP is to provide up to date knowledge and techniques in the continually evolving field of equine lameness analysis, to further diagnosis, treatment and management of lameness conditions in the equine athlete.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped over the course of the conference, especially to those who gave their time on Saturday to muck out early and prepare the demonstration horses and the hospital; those who held horses for the sessions and took various groups round; for vets who were on hand to make sure things ran smoothly and for Michelle and Rachel who put on such a fantastic spread!

A special mention goes to Practice Manager Linda Loines for taking on the enormous and unenviable role of organising the logistics for the 3 days and to MRI technicians Catherine and Cassie for their amazing work on Saturday to make the day run so smoothly.
