About this course

These lectures are designed for horse owners, riders and anyone with a passion for horses.

Now available as a recorded lecture. Please note bookings are only via the website.

The climatic conditions of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games posed a unique set of challenges to ensuring that the horses were at the peak of their physical fitness for the competition. Hear how Nicola Lynch and Nick Hart from RVC Equine prepared their horses to cope with the heat and humidity, how the horses travelled and how they adjusted to being transported across time zones. Join us for a behind the scenes look at the equestrian events at Tokyo 2020 and discover what it takes to keep these top level horses healthy and happy both in the run up to, and during, competition.
