The 4th meeting of the “International Network Equine Science” will take place on 22nd and 23rd of October 2018 at Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences in Velp, the Netherlands and is entitled “EQUINE FUTURE- challenging perceptions”. The equine industry is under pressure- more media attention about the future of breeding, the welfare of horses, the training practices of riders and the equine industry in general forces the industry to challenge long held perceptions within and outside of the sector. Science and innovation need to help the industry to prepare for the future. Students and supervisors from the Universities (of Applied Sciences) that are part of the network and the general public will have the opportunity to discuss recent research on Technology, Welfare, Management and Sustainability around and of the horse(s).

The first day of the conference (22nd of October 2018) will be only accessible for students and professors as well as alumni of the animal programs of Van Hall Larenstein and will contain some future directed workshops and in the afternoon some practical sessions.  The second day of the conference (23rd of October 2018) will be open to the public and will present work of students of the participating universities clustered around different important equine topics.
