Press Release: Rutgers’ Annual Horse Management Seminar Goes Virtual!

New Brunswick, N.J. – Due to the in-person group meeting policies, and to make the event as convenient as possible for all attendees, we have decided to keep the Horse Management Seminar as a virtual format for one more year. The format will be similar to last year, and will instead consist of three Tuesday evening webinars on February 8th, 15th, and 22nd, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.


To register go to:


Each webinar will feature two speakers who will focus on “Recent Advances” in Health, Genetics, and Nutrition. Each evening will focus on one topic area and will end with an “Ask the Expert Live” panel hosted by Dr. Carey Williams, Equine Extension Specialist and the Associate Director of Outreach for the Rutgers Equine Science Center, as well as the evening’s speakers. Attendees will have time to ask questions about the presentations and are also encouraged to bring questions to the webinars based upon the subject area for that night. The schedule includes:
