Scientific Meetings

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 each November/December and a Summer Scientific Meeting.

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

Our next CMS meeting takes place on 23rd & 24th November 2020 at Cheltenham Racecourse, please click here for details.
