Horses Inside Out Conference 2016 Gillian HigginsGillian Higgins is an anatomist, biomechanist lecturer, and author. Her knowledge of the anatomy of the head has come from many observational and dissection studies. The iimplications for bridle fit has come from a combination of her different therapy trainings, BHS teaching qualifications and her interests in biomechanics, movement patterns and posture. Recently Gillian has been working on producing an anatomically accurate head model which will be used to help illustrate her talk.

 

 

claire lomasClaire Lomas Following the eventing accident at Osberton Horse trails in 2007,which left her paralysed from her waist down Claire was forced to rethink her life. Discharging herself from hospital after only 8 weeks, she was determined to find new things to do with her life. With incredible determination, strength of character and supported by her family, and new partner Dan, Claire has taken up a range of new challenges with the same determination that made her a successful event rider. She now skies, rides motorbikes, cycles, has completed a number of marathons in a robotic suit, visits schools to inspire children and has raised thousands for spinal research and the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation. We are incredibly lucky she has agreed to be the after dinner speaker at our conference.

 

Dr Maria SorokoDr. Maria Soroko who is joining us from Poland, is an authority on and has practiced thermography extensively in equine physiotherapy and in veterinary medicine, with vets, horse breeders and trainers since 2008. Conducting research on the application of thermography in sport and racing horses, and having published numerous scientific papers. Maria is the author of the book “Equine Thermography in Practice”. We are looking forward to welcoming her to ur conference.
