Here at The Horse we endeavor to take important and often complex equine research and translate it into something owners can understand, talk to their veterinarians about, and use as they manage their horses. Part of that effort involves attending veterinary conferences both here and abroad to bring updates from around the world.

Each year since 1961 the British Equine Veterinary Association has held its Congress in a variety of U.K. cities. The latest edition, held in Birmingham last September, gave attendees the opportunity to listen, learn, network, and have discourse on important equine health conditions. Here are some of the highlights.
