To reflect the increasing importance of science and research in sport horse breeding the new Department of Scientific Collaboration was created to coordinate the organisation’s groundbreaking work in initiatives such as the Scientific Advisory Committee. This has become a hub for the exchange of information in scientific research related to breeding.
Our Department will make the latest scientific developments and information available to the members and support the important goals of developing and promoting excellence, as well as safeguarding equine health and welfare.
Hello, nice to meet you. I am Karina Christiansen, and I am very excited to be heading up our new Department of Scientific Collaboration. In my day job, I am the Breeding Manager of the Danish Warmblood Studbook (DWB), a position in which I draw on my education in agricultural science, and in which I have developed a real passion for the improvement of sport horse breeding.
We continue to see enormous progress in scientific research, which is revolutionising sport horse breeding. This has the potential to enhance performance, welfare, longevity and equine health. I am delighted about this opportunity to strengthen our knowledge exchange among studbook members and the scientific community.
The Department of Science will be happy to be informed about research going on in your country/studbook. Please send me a small summary of the research. More information in form of scientific papers will also be welcome.
If you have any questions or would like to find out more about our work and how you can get involved, please do not hesitate to drop us an email, it would be a pleasure to talk to you.
