Saddle Fit Conference to Take Place in December 2018

Building on the resounding success of the previous two international conferences in 2012 and 2014, the Saddle Research Trust (SRT) has confirmed the date for the next global gathering of leading researchers to discuss the complex relationship between horse, saddle, and rider.

The conference will be held Dec. 8, 2018, at Nottingham University’s De Vere Conference Centre, in the U.K., and is set to feature influential speakers from across the globe.

Entitled “Horse, Rider, Saddlery interactions: Welfare and Performance,” the program will focus on the latest research, from new techniques in equine pain recognition to rider posture and equine biomechanics, offering a unique insight to progress in key areas. Speakers that have already confirmed their attendance include world-renowned veterinarian, author, and researcher Hilary Clayton, BVMS, PhD, Dipl. ACVSMR, MRCVS, and leading equine orthopedic expert Sue Dyson, MA, Vet MB, PhD, DEO, FRCVS.

The public conference, which is supported by World Horse Welfare and Wow Saddles, has a capacity for up to 550 delegates. For the first time, the conference will be followed by a gala awards dinner with a host of celebrity guests. Tickets for the evening dinner are available to purchase separately.
