Session 2 “Nutritional assessment of forage quality”

Session 3b“Grazing and pasture management”

Under this topic the presentations can be focused for example on establishing and managing principles of pastures for horses, options on plant species and varieties considering different soils and climate conditions. Presentations dealing with comparison of natural and cultivated pastures are welcome, as well.

Session 4 “Impact of harvest, preservation and storage conditions on forage quality”

Presentations in this session can deal with nutrient losses during harvesting and, preservation and storage, as well as effects on digestibility, and palatability. Also results on contaminations by toxic plants, bacterial and fungal toxins can be presented.

Session 5 “Forage feeding systems”

In this session the presentations can treat e.g. feeding of various types of horses (growing horses, broodmares, exercising horses etc.) fed with forage based diets; proper forage-to-concentrate ratio for different horses, use and needs of supplemental feeds, and supplementation based on the nutrient content of the forage.

Session 6a “Sustainable development of rural areas with horses”

Presentations under this subject can treat how local breeds contribute to sustainable development of rural areas, their impact on landscape and relationships with environmental preservation. Also papers dealing with pollution indicators and its prevision in horse production are welcome.

Session 6b “Sustainable development of rural areas with horses – socio-economic aspects”

Under this topic presentations can be focused on socio-economic impact of horse production on rural areas and also land use by equidae holders.

Information on content of any submitted papers

Note on content:

Abstracts should be complete in themselves. The title should be descriptive, specific, and concise. The name of the presenting author should appear first. The Introduction should first state the background and objectives of the work. The material and methods should describe clearly the methods used, including numbers and types of animals. The results obtained, together with relevant statistical analysis should be presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusions drawn. The conclusions should clearly state the author’s view of the implications of the results to scientific understanding and practical use. Avoid vague sentences. It is recommended that the material for a summary should be discussed with any co-authors and read critically by a colleague who has not been closely involved.

Statistical analyses and presentation of results

  • The experimental design and statistical methods must be clear. Experiments where treatments and pens (or groups) of animals are confounded are not acceptable.

  • Treatment means should be presented with appropriate standard errors of means or differences. The minimum number of decimal places required to demonstrate significant differences should be used.

  • Probability values must be presented to support conclusions. Probability levels of P>0.05 are NOT significant and p-levels for no significance do not have to be given.

  • The use of percentages should be avoided wherever possible; concentrations or compositions should be expressed as mass per unit mass or mass per unit volume; decimal proportions should be used for common ratios such as digestibilities.

  • The results of surveys will be accepted if the work has been conducted with the same scientific rigour as designed experiments.


Should adhere to the format given in the pdf file – “Guide for Authors

Commercial products

Where results on commercial products are being presented, authors should ensure, before submitting their summary, that both their organisation and the commercial company involved give permission to publish.
