Rutgers Annual Horse Management Seminar to Include a Virtual Series Again in 2024
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Back by popular demand, along with our face-to-face version of the seminar, we have decided to keep the Horse Management Seminar as a virtual option for our global audience! The format will be similar to last year and will consist of three Tuesday evening webinars on February 13th, 20th, and 27th, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
Each webinar will feature two speakers who will fall under the theme of “You asked for it…!” You might ask yourself, what did I ask for? Hosted by the Rutgers Equine Science Center and Rutgers Cooperative Extension, the team has compiled a list of the most commonly asked-for topics during the past three years of virtual conferences to create a program highlighting attendees' interests. The team is also happy to announce that the seminar will return to an in-person format, making it the first live Horse Management Seminar since the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the virtual seminar schedule includes:
February 13th – Pasture Management
“Managing Weeds in Horse Pastures”by Dr. Matt Elmore, Rutgers University
“Equipment for Small Horse Farm Pasture Management” by Dr. Bob Coleman, University of Kentucky
February 20th – Senior Horse Care
“Feeding the Senior Horse” by Dr. Nettie Liburt, Liburt Equine Nutritional Consulting
“Veterinary Care for the Geriatric Horse”by Dr. Jessica Martin, Mountain Pointe Equine, Hackettstown, NJ
February 27th – Health and Welfare
“Parasites and Ticks in your Horse”by Dr. Danielle Smarsh – Penn State University
“Evaluating Pain in your Horse”by Dr. Kris Hiney, Oklahoma State University
Attendees can register for one specific webinar night, or for all three at the same time using the same link. The webinars are FREE to attend, however, to facilitate a more engaged live audience with the speakers they will not be posted to the archived webinars immediately after the program.
