The charity will be holding various veterinary talks, where horse owners will have the opportunity to get advice from leading experts on topics such as worming and dental issues. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet retired police horse Warwick and to contribute to the charity’s research into horse owner’s worming habits by taking part in a pilot survey.
This year’s Bucks County Show will take place on Thursday 1st September between 8am and 6pm at Weedon Park, near Aylesbury. The Horse Trust stand, which is located on the corner of Sheep Walk and Avenue E near the Countryside area (stand ER11), has already confirmed a number of equine experts, who will be giving free talks at the event.
“We hope that as many people as possible will come to visit us at our Bucks County Show stand,” said Liane Crowther, Training Manager at The Horse Trust. “This will be a great opportunity for horse owners to get advice from leading experts in their field.”
