The ISES 2017 Down Under conference will provide an environment for the exchange of ideas between equestrians of all disciplines, practitioners, academics, businesses and governments.
Charles Sturt University (CSU) at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales, Australia, will host this year’s annual ISES conference.
Situated on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, Wagga Wagga – known as Wagga to locals – has a proud sporting history, a thriving cultural calendar and a growing restaurant and café scene. CSU’s campus at Wagga, is situated on 640 hectares and includes a campus farm, equine centre, vineyard, winery and a range of technical and industry standard teaching and operational facilities. A central dining area provides students and guests with a variety of meal options and the campus offers a range of sporting fields and facilities including a gymnasium and swimming pool.

Equitation Science Researchers were invited to submit abstracts that fall within the deliberately broad theme of Equitation Science in Practice: Collaboration, Communication and Change. Abstract submission has now closed. A wide range of abstracts under this theme have been received and we are looking forward to the research being presented at the conference.
The NSW Department of Industry has awarded funding of $6,500 to the International Society of Equitation Science for the 2017 conference in Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia.
