The annual get-together of equestrian experts and enthusiasts is a virtual one for 2021.

SPILLERS is to sponsor this year’s National Equine Forum (NEF). 

The online event begins this evening (27 January) with a webinar entitled The Great Weight Debate. 

SPILLERS’ parent company MARS Equestrian has agreed to sponsor the main NEF on 4 March.

“With its immense success in bringing the equestrian sector together to share knowledge and harness ideas to support our nation’s love for the horse, [the NEF] reflects MARS Equestrian’s and SPILLERS’ ethos as proud partners in care,” said Clare Barfoot, marketing, research and development director, 

The NEF Great Weight Debate, from 7pm tonight, takes a practical look at weight management of the obese horse, pony and donkey from across the equestrian sector.

The session will be chaired by equine veterinary nutrition specialist   Professor Pat Harris who heads the WALTHAM Equine Studies Group and is vice chairman of the NEF organising committee.

How to get tickets

The main 29th NEF, to be held virtually on Thursday 4 March, will consider welfare, trade and biosecurity, plus positive innovations for the sector prompted by Covid-19. 

The afternoon session will update delegates on how technology is helping riders; and review access and accidents.

Tickets are £5 each for tonight’s Great Weight Debate webinar and £10 for the main NEF. For more information: https://www.nationalequineforum.com/
