The international conferences serve as a platform where the latest scientific results into the training and welfare of horses are communicated and discussed. It is a meeting place for academics and non-academics to link science with practice.

During the meetings, plenary oral and poster sessions are held, along with practical demonstrations addressing various topics in horse training.

The peer reviewed papers and posters are summarized in the Proceedings that are available for download.
