Equine Guelph has teamed up with Trot Radio's Norm Borg and SSG Gloves to produce Research Radio, an online podcast updating you on the latest equine research by scientists at the Ontario Veterinary College and University of Guelph. It will highlight the cutting edge discoveries being made, and explain what they mean for the health and welfare of your horse.

Equine Guelph Director Gayle Ecker said, “Our partners at Ontario Veterinary College are producing ground breaking research designed to improve the health, welfare and safety of the equine athlete. The more widely we can publicize their findings the more likely their work will be put to use to find concrete solutions as a means to that end.”

The first episode is already available featuring an interview with Dr. Jeff Thomason and his study of race track surfaces and their impact on the performance horse. The results of the study could lead the way to newer, improved methods of therapy and preventative farrier techniques.

To listen to the first podcast, simply log on to EquineGuelph.ca. Click on the Research tab at the top of the page, then click Research Radio.
