Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week is in its 58th Year!
What do behavioural research, hoof biomechanics, liberty training, saddle making, fall safety, equine metabolic syndrome, massage therapy and alternative driving disciplines all have in common? (Aside from relating to horses…) They are all topics that will be included at Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week’s Horse Day 2024!
The 58 year old conference will be held from January 3rd – 9th at the Elmwood Community Centre, with Horse Day falling on Sunday, January 7th 2024. Participants can join in-person in Elmwood, or online via the livestream to catch the presentations. For those attending in-person, there will also be a tradeshow all day and a hot roast beef lunch included with their ticket price. All participants (whether in-person or livestreaming) will be able to review conference recordings and additional on-demand videos online for 30 days following the event. The fun just keeps going!
For many conference-goers, attending Horse Day in the first week of January has become a wintertime tradition; a time when participants meet with friends and get current updates on equine topics. What better way to get motivated for a new year? Organizers hope that those who haven’t been before will start a new tradition in 2024, engaging in education to better their equine care, and meeting with friends from the horse industry outside of a competition environment.
Presenters will include Dr. Katrina Merkies, Steve McConnell, Lindsey Partridge, Ernie & Jodi Wilson, Heidi Martin, Dr. Tee Fox, Scott Cieslar, Carolyn Aarup, and Ashley Stinson. Two hands-on, demonstration style presentations will be included, so look forward to those!
