Nearly 100 scientific sessions highlight this year’s convention. In-depth seminars and expert panels will explore lameness in the western performance horse, the use of frozen semen, current concepts in equine osteoarthritis, pediatrics, and the use of antimicrobials. The popular wet lab sessions, which offer hands-on training, will address dentistry, lameness, neurology, reproduction, and ultrasound. Professional development seminars and interactive small group discussions complete the offerings for convention attendees.


Featured speakers include James N. Moore, DVM, PhD, one of the world’s foremost authorities on equine gastrointestinal disease. Moore will deliver the Frank J.
