A review of the Saddle Research Trust (SRT) International Conference and Research Workshop has been published in the Equine Veterinary Education journal, the official education journal of the British Equine Veterinary Association.

"Horses, Saddles, and Riders: Applying the Science" by Hilary Clayton, BVMS, PhD, MRCVS, Dipl. ACVSMR; Sue Dyson, MA, Vet MB, PhD, DEO, FRCVS; Pat Harris; MA, VetMB, PhD, Dipl. ECVCN, MRCVS; and Anne Bondi, BHSI. is a six-page review of the papers presented at the Saddle Research Trust International Conference and Research Workshop, held in November 2014.

The public conference attracted around 400 delegates to hear leading veterinary and scientific experts in this area discuss and debate the latest research on saddle-related equine welfare and performance issues. The conference, which was only the second of its kind ever held, saw veterinarians, saddlers, and equine therapists joining professional riders and trainers as well as leisure owners and riders to hear international experts share their vast experience. The public conference day was followed by a two-day researchers’ workshop, where leading scientists in the field of horse, saddle, and rider interactions debated their cutting edge research. The entire event— which was sponsored by World Horse Welfare, the British Equestrian Federation, Amerigo Saddles, Albion Saddlemakers, and Horse & Hound magazine—was hailed a highly important step in the sharing of knowledge and expertise for the good of the horse by the sponsors.
