ISES USA 2013 - July 17-20
Embracing Science to Enhance Equine Welfare and Horse-Human Interactions
We are delighted to see the ISES Conference returning to the US in 2013! We hosted the 2007 Conference at Michigan State University and that marked the year we officially became a society. Now six years later, our Society has grown in many dimensions, and we are very excited to see this conference return to the United States. This conference continues to offer an outstanding international platform for scientists and professional practitioners to present and discuss research related to the field of equitation science. The ISES mission is to promote and encourage the application of objective research and advanced practice, which will ultimately improve the welfare of horses in their associations with humans.
The hosting is a collaborative effort on the parts of Dr. Carissa Wickens, University of Delaware; Dr. Sue McDonnell, University of Pennsylvania, New Bolton Center; and Dr. Camie Heleski, Michigan State University, with other team members just starting to join in on the organizing fun.
This international conference will take place July 17-20, 2013, with the scientific presentation days being held at the University of Delaware’s campus, Clayton Conference Center, Newark, Delaware and the Practical Day (Saturday, July 20) taking place at the New Bolton Center, University of Pennsylvania, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Yes, these locations are in separate states, but they are only about 20 miles (32 km) apart.
We hope you will plan extra time into your visit to enjoy sightseeing along the East Coast of the USA…it is a beautiful and historical section of the country with a strong appreciation for the horse industry. Please visit the ISES website soon to learn about updates as they become available.
