How to Prevent Laminitis in the Willamette Valley

April 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

$5 – $15

Please join Natalie Sullivan with On Course Equine Nutrition for this presentation focusing on laminitis in the Willamette Valley. Laminitis is a devastating disease afflicting horses of many sizes, ages, and breeds! There is more than one cause of laminitis, but in this lecture, we will focus on the endocrine and nutrition related causes of laminitis and how to prevent it.

Topics

  • Assessing your horse’s risk level!
  • What are “carbs” exactly and how do we measure them?
  • How does hay and pasture contribute?
  • How to supplement safely.
  • Management strategies to compliment forage first decisions that prevent laminitis!
