All proceeds will support the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine Equine Health Program and the Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners at NCSU.

The veterinary program will take place over the course of both days. Seven hours of continuing education credits will be available to attendees each day. Additionally, attendees are invited to stay for the horse owner program. Lecture topics will include hoof care, orthopedics, diagnostic imaging, and more. A full program and speaker listing is available on the program's website.

The horse owner program will take place on Feb. 9 and will feature NCSU veterinarians and guest speakers presenting on topics that directly affect horses' care and management.
