19th August, 2008 Keep smiling

Tonight I attended a talk by Tony Rose, Equine Dental Technician. We are blessed in this area to have so many equine specialists with really good reputations. Tony described the sort of problems that you can get with a horse's teeth and the type of work that can normally be carried out without sedation. It was good to hear that he takes an interest not only in the horse's structure, age and condition, but also the purpose for which the horse is used and the bit that it normally wears. My own vet, Chris Pearce is a dental specialist and trains horse dentists so I shall be sticking with him but Tony's talk was really informative and definitely worth listening to. A plug here also for the Wessex Classical Riding Group that always has such interesting talks.
