ISES 14th Equitation Science Conference

Rome, Italy


 Equitation Science 150 years after Caprilli: theory and practice, the full circle


Conference Theme

Equine welfare: good training, good feeding, good housing, good mental state, good health, good behaviour.

Research focusing on any of the mentioned topics or on how to assess equine welfare is very welcome. 

Place

The conference will take place in the historic military place “Lanceri di Montebello”, the same place in which Federico Caprilli worked. 

The conference is held remembering the 150 from the birth of Caprilli who patent the concept of lightening the seat and “giving” the reins to the horse while jumping which revolutionised equitation. Caprilli was the first to realise the horse needed freedom to deal with the obstacle and maintain its natural balance. Caprilli is therefore known for having revolutionized the jumping seat and introduced the concept of “natural equitation” which today is recognized as ‘the revolution in modern equitation’. 

We look forward to seeing you in Rome!
