Student Wins World Horse Welfare Bursary

Congratulations to Christian Byrne a  Third Year student of the RDSVS who has been awarded a Bursary by World Horse Welfare.

The bursary scheme provides the opportunity for students to attend The 7th International Colloquium on Working Equids 2014. The Colloquium consists of two days of lectures and discussion together with a third day of practical workshops. The event will focus on the question: “How do we demonstrate the importance of working equid welfare to human livelihoods?”.

Christian Byrne  stated: 'I am hoping to take away from the Colloquium an understanding of the diversity of roles that working equids play in different communities and how the veterinary surgeon can assist in optimising the interaction this has with animal and human welfare'.
