Research Posters from SRT2018 – the award winners
The Saddle Research Trust sent out a call for researchers to submit summaries of their work to be considered for a poster display at the 2018 International Conference. The research studies had to meet exacting criteria before being submitted to the SRT Peer Review Panel, who judged all the summaries.
A short list of seven high-quality posters that satisfied all the requirements was finally selected to be displayed during the conference. Together, the research posters provide a fascinating mix of topics, demonstrating the huge spectrum that the scientific investigation of horse, rider and saddlery interaction covers.
The outcomes from these research studies have the potential to make a positive impact on equine welfare and performance by advancing the knowledge of every practitioner, owner, and rider. This is a hugely complex subject area, and the Saddle Research Trust will continue to work towards a greater understanding of welfare and performance of the ridden horse.
The two best research posters were presented with awards during the prestigious SRT Gala Dinner that followed the conference.
