Canada’s Equine Guelph has launched a new audio podcast giving updates on the latest equine research.
Research Radio is a collaboration between Equine Guelph, Trot Radio’s Norm Borg and SSG Gloves. The podcasts will highlight the discoveries being made in the latest equine research by scientists at the Ontario Veterinary College and University of Guelph. The broadcasts will explain what is being learned and what it means for the health and welfare of the horse.
“Our partners at Ontario Veterinary College are producing ground-breaking research designed to improve the health, welfare and safety of the equine athlete,” said Equine Guelph director Gayle Ecker says.
“The more widely we can publicize their findings the more likely their work will be put to use to find concrete solutions as a means to that end.”
The first episode is already available, featuring an interview with Dr Jeff Thomason and his study of racetrack surfaces and their impact on the performance horse. The results of the study could lead the way to newer, improved methods of therapy and preventative farrier techniques.
