There will also be an Anatomy Exhibition where there will be skeletal specimens to study. All from a variety of ponies, with an array of anatomical anomalies, which demonstrate the fact that there’s rarely a textbook skeleton! With extra ribs, too many or too few vertebrae, growth plates, and distorted hooves.

Plus, a Scientific Poster Presentation Area – posters relating to the theme Upwards and Onwards will be on display for you to study.
Posters can be submitted by students, lecturers, research professionals or companies and the authors will be on hand during the breaks to answer questions about their research.
