Additional Event Information

‘Getting ready for Colder Nights. A talk by Claire Buchanan. This talk will cover: • Understanding Thermoregulation in horses • Our horses are individuals - What rugs do they really need? • Really getting to know and understand your horse when you are not there • Dispelling myths and a few case studies! • Claire’s personal voyage of discovery on supplements • Why she changed her views These subjects are emotive and Claire will be putting the facts out there to allow people to ask questions to get to their own conclusions. Talk 7pm – 8.30pm. Doors open at 6.45pm 28 seats available, £5 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased via Equo It is believed that some owners may judge their horses’ thermal comfort based on how they themselves feel and may subsequently over-rug, leading to equine discomfort and potentially contributing to obesity. A solution may be to use Orscana, a sensor that measure the temperature and humidity of rug-wearing horses. The Orscana sensor is a useful tool, able to reliably indicate when horses become too hot, even when this cannot be manually felt or observed. Its use could, therefore, optimise rug selection based on a horse’s individual requirements. Orscana lets you know which rug you should be using for what conditions whether your horse is in the stable, field or travelling. It provides insight into your horses life, how long they are lying down, if they are calm or stressed and when they are moving , giving you a complete view into their daily lives.
