Raveman’s Gelding Incentive Fund is now available for application!
This financial assistance program was developed to aid stallion owners in the veterinary cost associated with gelding horses. In this way we hope to reduce backyard breeding and overpopulation of unwanted horses, as well as help horses be more saleable or adoptable as geldings.

This year our program will include two main presentations. Heidi Reesink, VMD, PhD, DACVS, will present Equine Joint Disease: Strategies for Prevention and Treatment. Dr. Reesink is currently an Assistant Professor of Large Animal Surgery at Cornell University who has clinical interests in equine orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, lameness and emergency surgery. Her laboratory research aims to unravel basic mechanisms underlying the development of orthopedic disease and to pioneer innovative therapies for the treatment of joint injury and arthritis in both horses and humans. She is interested in applying the latest research discoveries to improve the well being of equine athletes with musculoskeletal injuries.

Sarah Reuss, VMD, DACVIM, is a board certified large animal internal medicine specialist who received her VMD from the University of Pennsylvania. She completed an internship at the Equine Medical Center of Ocala, followed by a residency in Large Animal Internal Medicine at Texas A&M University. Dr. Reuss joined Merial’s Equine Veterinary Professional Services Team after five years experience as a Clinical Assistant Professor and Chief of Large Animal Medicine Service at the University of Florida. Dr. Reuss will be conducting a tour of the horse’s gastrointestinal tract as she presents The GI Tract: From Entrance to Exit.

Our 2016-17 intern, Dr. Katie Schlecker will also discuss a case history of a GVEC patient.

Our trade show exhibitors will display all sorts of booths with great products, information about horse clubs, and educational opportunities. We will also present the GVEC Community Service Award and raffle off many wonderful door prizes. The first Saturday in February is a special day on the local horsemen’s calendar. We look forward to seeing you again this year!
