Sorry but we had to cancel the course on October 28-30, 2021, in cooperation with Centre Hospitalier Vétérinaire Equin de Livet, France, due to the low number of persons registered at the end of the early registration deadline!

The courses shall allow participants to follow and practice each single step of a lameness exam of horses. The number of participants is restricted to 14 in each course to achieve the objective. The instructors will be Sue Dyson and Lotta Månsby in Sweden and Sébastien Caure and Sue Dyson in France.

Participants are invited to bring along their own ultrasound and radiographic equipment as well as radiographic images for evaluation in the group! The German Academy for Continuous Veterinary Education (ATF) credits each course with 21 hours.
