Events

The ARVS has been instrumental in improving the standard of veterinary care and welfare of horses on UK racecourses through the provision of quality CPD in the annual Casualty Management Seminar and Summer Scientific Meetings.

These meetings also provide an important opportunity for discussion on the management of injury and disease on and off the racecourse. These courses are also very applicable to Veterinarians providing services other Sports Horse events.

Summer Meeting

In response to the latest Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidelines, we regret to inform you that we have made the responsible decision to cancel our Summer Meeting which was due to take place on June 2nd at Windsor.

This programme is currently planned to be rolled over to next year, however, we will continue to review the advice given. Thank you for your understanding, we hope that you all stay safe and well.

Casualty Management Seminar

In light of the Covid 19 outbreak,  ARVS are reviewing our provision of the Casualty Management Seminar for 2020.  Unfortunately, at this time we are all uncertain of the trajectory that the outbreak will take. Therefore, we have decided to stop taking any bookings at this time, but we would be happy to put anyone on the list to reserve a place. We would aim to update members about CMS in about a months’ time, when we might all have a clearer picture of the health crisis. 

Please only email or phone with your details – don’t post forms – name, practice, email & phone number, days 1&2 or 2 only.  Thank you
