Equine workshop
The Equitarian Workshop is a unique educational opportunity for practicing veterinarians.
Dr. Susan Monger/HSVMA

The HSVMA has partnered with other sponsors including the AAEP Foundation, Universidad National Autónoma de México and the Donkey Sanctuary to continue to support the Equitarian Workshop, which is now in its second year. It will be held October 10-14 in Veracruz, Mexico.

This is a golden opportunity for veterinarians from the United States and Mexico to meet and learn about the best ways to provide care for working horses, mules and donkeys. The unique format will include lectures by veterinary professionals with experience in delivering care in rural areas, as well as real field experience in farming communities currently serviced by an established program of the veterinary school at UNAM.

To help participants make their way to this groundbreaking workshop HSVMA is offering 10 trip awards. The 10 winners will receive $500 to put towards their travel.

Qualified enteries for the awards must be registered with the Equitarian Workshop prior to application. Detailed information about the workshop and the registration form can be found on the AAEP Foundation website.

After you've registered for the workshop, read the trip award rules and apply now—the deadline is September 5 (we're sorry, but the deadline for the workshop trip stipend application has passed).
