Advanced Treatments for Lameness

Organized by our Platinum Partner Grovet in partnership with Owl Manor, this Satellite Seminar will cover the latest insights in advanced treatment options for lameness in sport horses. A lot of hope has been set on these novel treatments. Besides a good understanding of orthopedic injuries, joint problems and bone cysts, the mode of action of novel treatment modalities need to be carefully considered in order to generate optimal results.

I Amsterdam

Make the most of your visit to Jumping Amsterdam! Take your time to explore the Dutch capital.

Amsterdam is very accessible and compact with an excellent public transport system. Amsterdam is the ideal place for an informal visit with colleague veterinarians and bring your partner. What about arranging to meet up in one of the many museums that are often located within walking distance of the city centre, the countless pavement cafés or one of the 55 theatres.

Amsterdam has a great reputation when it comes to dining and a good night out. Once in town, Amsterdams' charming, compact centre is easy to navigate on foot or by public transport. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Amsterdam.

Choose from internationally renowned museums and sights, explore the markets, quirky boutiques and department stores or just strole along the famous canals: everything is possible. The oldest area of the town is known as de Wallen (the quays). It lies to the east of Damrak and contains the city’s famous red light district. To the south of de Wallen is the old Jewish quarter of Waterlooplein.

The 17th century canals of Amsterdam, known as the Grachtengordel, embraces the heart of the city where houses have interesting gables.

After an intense conference day at the Veterinary Sport Horse Congress 2024, you could consider to visit Amsterdam or enjoy and relax the upper level equestrian sports during Jumping Amsterdam.
