The leading Canadian equine organizations have formed a consortium to increase awareness of Brain Injuries and Mental Health in the Canadian Equine Industry. Shelly is delighted to be sharing about Concussion Relief with Horses as part of the afternoon program.


Spruce Meadows along with the therapeutic product innovator, Back on Track Canada and leaders from the sport and emergency medicine community, announce the formation of a national consortium committed to increasing concussion and mental health awareness across the Canadian equine industry. Leaders from the Western and English riding communities have come together to design and initiate the delivery of Canada’s first Symposium on Brain Injury and Mental Health in the Canadian Equine Industry, slated for January 24th, 2019 at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta. Symposium workshop leaders, speakers, and panelists are being drawn from a roster of recognized experts in the equine world. The one-day event is designed to equip participants with resources they can take back to their respective horse-riding communities and put into daily use. “We want to provide a toolbox of resources to all Canadian equine organizations, so they can better deal with the critical issue of rider health and wellness,” says Dr. Blaine Bugg, President of the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sports Medicine Team.
