•UC-Davis Seeks Horse Management Survey Input, 11/21•
The Center for Equine Health at the University of California-Davis is seeking input from horse owners, trainers, riders, and veterinarians for an online survey regarding the management practices of all performance horse disciplines.
Claudia Sonder, a veterinarian and director of the Center for Equine Health, is conducting a study to help identify links between horse management practices and musculoskeletal health, injury, and performance.
The anonymous, online survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and is available by clicking here at Research Survey for more info.
"Once we identify trends in management practices and correlate them with health, injury, and performance, we will target research to fill gaps in knowledge and establish science-based recommendations for equine athletes," Sonder said.
The resulting research findings is designed to help prevent injury and increase safety for equine athletes, thus benefiting horses, owners and the industry, she added.
