Here are the participant joining instructions for the evening...
We have been overwhelmed by everybody's enthusiasm for this evening, which filled up really quickly. If you were lucky enough to reserve a place, here are some basic instructions for the evening....
Please could we ask you to arrive 10 mins before your session's start time. You can park on the main yard at Somerford, and walk down to the clinic. Although much of the evening is inside, parts of it are in the stables, so please bring plenty of warm clothes. Please assemble outside the clinic, where we will provide you with a brief introduction to the evening and a health and safety briefing. We will aim to start on time and keep to time. We anticipate your experience will last around 90 minutes.
Please come with as many questions as you can think of. This is a interactive evening where we will use the post mortem materials to familiarise you with as much horse anatomy as we can in the time we have - all we ask is that you come curious and keen to learn.
At the end of your session we will take you around to our clinic reception for tea, and coffee, and we hope to be selling cakes for our chosen charity.
Once again, we thank you for your donation to the Alzheimer's Society. Together we have raised fantastic £2,400.
Please note - the evening is only for pre-booked places, and we will take a register at the start of each session. We are fully booked and can't accommodate any extras on this occasion.
We look forwards to seeing you on March 7th.
Inside Nature’s Giants
We will be running another of our very popular Inside Nature’s Giants evenings on Wednesday 7th March 2018. This will be a very informative evening where we will use horse post mortem materials to introduce you to the anatomy of the horse, giving you a unique opportunity to have a detailed look inside these fascinating animals.
What’s the evening for?
The evening will allow horse owners to become more familiar with how their horses work, and will give you more understanding about the relationship between your own horse, and their anatomy and physiology. You don’t need to be a client, or even a horse owner – just curious about how the body works and willing to donate to a good cause.
Who is this evening for?
The evening is suitable for anyone who is interested in learning more about horses. It will use a large amount of horse post mortem materials, including heads, bodies and legs. For this reason it is not suitable for very young children. It is suitable for horse owners, riders, students and anyone whose curious about how the equine body works.
We are running this evening as a fund raiser for the Alzheimers Society. All our vets, nurses and support staff are volunteering their services. We are asking clients for a donation of £20 per person to attend the event. You can pay and book over the phone by calling the office on 01477 571000 / 08458330034. Last time we ran this course it sold out very quickly, so book now to avoid disappointment. We think these tickets will make a great Christmas present.
The event will be running from 3.30pm. Attendees will be visiting four demonstrations over approximately 90 minutes. The four stations are – the head / sinuses and dentistry, the chest cavity, the legs, tendons and joints anatomy and the whole body with some comparative anatomy with farm species. We will be providing tea, coffee and cake after you finish the event
