There were 16 papers and 8 peer-reviewed posters. A practical session was held at the Stable Rosenthal (Carpiano) to stress the strong link between ethology and equitation. The Symposium included a specific session that was dedicated to identifying immediate priorities of research.

  • Examine the pros and cons of working juvenile and immature horses.
  • How much is too much and how early is too soon?
