In addition a third day will provide participants the opportunity to improve their own skills under the surveillance of the instructors!

    We will work on cases at the equine clinic. The day will be divided into four sessions of 90 minutes each. In each of the sessions a new case is presented, but the group of participants changes (so the participants get an opportunity to experience each of the instructors); Horses will undergo routine clinical and acupunctural exam of the instructors. Radiography, ultrasound, etc. will be used when they could ad to disclose the reason for a pathologic condition of a case.
