Dr Roberta Ferro de Godoy said: "I was delighted to work with fellow academics to support equine students from around the UK. Our aim was to offer a supportive environment that combined the knowledge and expertise of many leading universities. It was wondering to see the success of the event and to hear the students' enthusiasm for new innovations and ground-breaking research."
