HRH The Princess Royal to Open ILPH Annual Seminar

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal has kindly agreed to give the opening address at the International League for the Protection of Horses’ (ILPH) Annual Seminar on Thursday 9th November at Tattersalls, Newmarket.

Her Royal Highness will be heading a distinguished list of guest speakers from both the Veterinary and Sport Horse World as well as from the ILPH. Subjects as diverse as the riddle of grass sickness, today's racehorse, ILPH training work in El Salvador and the cost implications of the disposal of dead horses, will be covered.

Speakers will include Yogi Breisner, Performance Director to the British 3-Day Event Team and Chef d’Equipe in Sydney, just back from the Olympics, giving a talk entitled Training Tomorrow’s Riders, and Jeremy James, ILPH Consultant on Transportation, also recently back from foreign soil. Jeremy will be giving the invited audience an update on the slaughter horse transportation issue following his recent fact finding mission to Poland, Slovakia and Belarus.

This event has been kindly sponsored by Howes Percival, Solicitors, Rubicon Computer Systems Ltd. and KBIS Equine Insurance.
