🎓 Christina Fritz – What is the influence of nutrition on a young horse? (7PM Dutch time)

You can imagine that when a horse is growing, it is important that they receive all the building materials for optimal growth. How can you keep the young horse’s nutritional system in balance in order to optimize their development? We’ll also dive deeper into the effects of high physical demands at a young age, such as in racehorses. In that case, building blocks are sometimes used for other purposes than growth, what are the effects of this?


Sunday 26 March

🎓 Sharon May-Davis – Growth spurts, what do you need to know? (10AM Dutch Time)
