Dr. Lisa Borzynski of Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital was ringside for the dressage, eventing, and show jumping. In this webinar, she will share her perspectives from being part of the FEI team of 20 veterinarians from 11 countries that ran the on-site veterinary clinic and monitored the health and welfare of the equine athletes.

Ninety percent of training a horse is getting the horse to understand exactly what you want them to do. In general, horses are generous and willing creatures who want to please us; very seldom do they behave badly on purpose. Horses don’t come out and say, ‘Let’s make Mom’s (or Dad’s) life miserable today by going as poorly as possible - most prefer to do the right thing, as long as they know what that is.
