We are celebrating our 15 Year Anniversary, and while we thought about throwing a birthday party… we think that we have come up with something a little better…

We cordially invite you to join us for "Horses 2017: The Best of the Best"! After over 7 years we decided to bring back this truly one of-a-kind event.

From March 18-19 (that’s right two whole days!) we will take over the Rutgers University Livingston Student Center and transform it into a world-class equine extravaganza.

So here's the deal... We are going to bring in Professors, Veterinarians, Specialists, and Everyday People to bring you the best that the Equine field has to offer. With talks ranging from the basics of nutrition, manure & pasture management, and behavior & training, to talks that will go into what a farrier does, dermatology, dentistry, saddle fitting, and footing, we are going to bring you world class people to answer your questions and give you the BEST information from the field that they represent.

Here’s what you have to do… Attend! Join Us! Spread the Word! Help us to make this the most successful event that the Center has ever held!

And it’s not just about the speakers, there will be a vendor tradeshow throughout the conference. Come to this showcase to learn about new products, purchase that item on your wish list, and speak with some of the many, many non-profit groups that save horses, educate our kids on being the next equine industry leaders and competitors, and spend every day making a difference in our equine community.

Finally, each day will end with an “Ask The Experts” panel. Here we will bring together some of the speakers that you will see throughout the day, as well as professors from our staff, to answer questions about everything equine. More information about how to submit your question will be posted on our Facebook Page in the coming days.

We hope that you are as excited as we are, and it is only with your help that we will truly make this an event to remember, and a celebration worthy of our 15 years at Rutgers University.

We can’t wait to see you there,
