Equine health experts host free information evenings for Lincolnshire horse owners

Bransby Horses are hosting a series of free-to-attend events aimed at horse owners where experts in weight management, laminitis, farriery, rural crime and track systems will share their experiences and offer advice.

Bransby Horses’ Welfare Campaigns Officer, Rachel Dixon said: “Through these talks we are hoping to raise awareness of the early signs of some common horse health issues, as well as offering preventative management tips for owners.”

The first information evening, looking at weight management, will take place on April 20 at the charity’s main site in Bransby near Lincoln.

Following on from this on May 18, registered farrier Scott Sykes DipWCF, will present a talk about laminitis.

This will be followed by a talk on track grazing systems on July 13 and Lincolnshire’s Rural Crimes team will give the final talk on September 20.

The events are free but booking is essential as places are limited. Call 01427 788 464, email or visit to secure your place per event.

Each event takes place at 6.30pm, in the Clifford Marshall Building. Light refreshments and free parking available.
