Equestrians Invited To Free, Charity-Led Welfare Awareness Events

Following on from the amazing success of last year’s events Bransby Horses are once again hosting a series of talks for horse owners covering the latest equine management topics, such as track systems and alternative grazing set-ups.

These events are completely free and aimed at horse owners, equestrian business owners and land proprietors.

Bransby Horses has been rescuing and caring for equines in need for over 50 years and their Make a Difference events offer an opportunity for anyone interested to hear from the charity’s experienced teams, as part of their ongoing mission to positively impact the lives of equines.

Events organiser Rachel Dixon said: “We started these events last year and they were really popular, so we thought we’d do another series. For anyone who attended last year, we have new material and guest speakers so please come along, as we have a wealth of useful information we would love to share with you.

“A highlight will be at the talk in April when our guest speaker is Dr Tamzin Furtado who will be hosting her Alternative Grazing talk. Dr Furtado is a social scientist from the University of Liverpool, specialising in equine welfare and human behaviour change. Dr Furtado recently completed a PhD in managing obesity in horses, where she focused on the welfare of the horse and their relationship with humans. We are really lucky to have her visit us at Bransby Horses and can’t wait to hear her talk.”

The next event is Alternative Grazing Systems on Thursday, April 25 at 6.30 pm, followed by Grassland Management on Wednesday, July 17 at 11 am and Equine Identification and Registration on Thursday, September 5 at 6.30 pm.

All events are free to attend and will be held in the Clifford Marshall Building at Bransby Horses in Bransby near Lincoln.

Booking is essential, light refreshments and free parking will be available.
