Discover the world of evidence-based equitation

ISES international conferences are held every year to allow academics, students, practitioners and welfare organisations to come together and discuss the latest findings in equitation science. Often held in some of the world's extraordinary equine and academic settings, the conference brings together the major subject areas relevant to equine welfare and much more.
