Conditions affecting the back, pelvis and sacroiliac region are common in the horse and can cause pain, poor performance and lameness. Over the past decade the axial skeleton has been extensively researched; this new knowledge combined with recently published retrospective studies have shed light on these previously poorly understood problems. This 2-day practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge on the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and up-to-date therapy of back, pelvic and sacroiliac problems in the horse. 

In the mornings, the following topics will be covered in well-illustrated lectures and case presentations (in English, with German moderation):
  • Clinical examination of the back
  • Anatomy & Imaging of the back
  • Diagnostic techniques for back conditions
  • Common conditions of the back
  • Less common conditions of the back
  • Saddle fit assessment
  • Sacroiliac disease – Pathophysiology & Diagnosis
  • Sacroiliac disease – Injections & Therapy
  • Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
  • Imaging of the pelvis and hip
  • Soft tissue and muscle conditions of the pelvis
  • Bony problems affecting the pelvis and hip
Open and frank discussions are encouraged during the dedicated question times and the speakers will share their personal experiences (successes and failures) with attendees. 
 
In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees the opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens and to ask questions in small groups (2 - 4 attendees / ultrasound machine), all under the supervision of specialists. The following practical sessions will be covered during the course: 
  • Clinical examination of the back
  • Ultrasonography of the back
  • Saddle fit assessment
  • Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
  • Ultrasonography of the pelvis and hip
  • Sacroiliac injection techniques on specimens
The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3;  C-E.4;  C-E.6;  C-E.7;  C-E.15;  C-E.17; C-VDI.5

    Kay Hastilow
    Master Saddler, Qualified Saddle Fitter, Master Saddle Fitting Consultant

    United Kingdom

    More Info

    Kay has been a saddler since 1967, when she commenced her training with Bliss & Co., a quality saddlery manufacturer based in the City of London.  She started her own business in 1970, mainly manufacturing bridles, saddlery accessories, and also selling saddles.  At this time she was regularly competing in show jumping competitions up to grade A level, and also competing in dressage and horse trials.  She became interested in the influence of the fit of the saddle on the performance of horses and began concentrating on saddle fitting, which in the ‘70s was a ‘new’ (recycled) idea.  There was no training available so by practice and experimentation she learned what works, and what does not.  She also developed some modifications, such as the ‘Thoroughbred Panel’, which today are in general use.  When the English Society of Master Saddlers perceived that there was a great demand for training of saddle fitters they introduced the ‘Qualified Fitters Course’, and Kay was invited to be one of the lecturers on it.  She also wrote the Society of Master Saddler’s course notes on saddle fitting.

    Kay has taught on these courses since their inception, currently as lead lecturer.  She has regularly updated the notes and seen the course develop into an internationally recognised qualification.  She also regularly teaches internationally, including the USA and Holland.  Because of her teaching involvement, Kay has many visitors from overseas who come to spend some time working with her to gain practical experience in this field.

    When not teaching, she runs her own business in Scotland, exclusively fitting saddles for professional and amateur riders across a wide range of disciplines.
