    Dr David Marlin interviews Professor Lars Roepstorff, FEI's Surfaces Expert

    David is at London International Horse Show and catches up with his old friend Professor Lars Roepstorff. Lars is the International Surfaces Expert for the FEI.
    They discuss Lars' life, career and relationship/love of horses, where science and the thirst for care and well-being for horses led him as a vet and research scientist.
    This is a fascinating, warm and eye-opening interview. There is a focus on the intricacies of equestrian surfaces and what they are doing to ensure the best surfaces for our horses. What can you do to create the best working surface of your arena for your horse? They also discuss barefoot and competing barefoot horses at the highest levels.
    Apologies for the background noise - this interview was conducted LIVE at the London International Horse Show, Olympia can be very loud!

    Is it time to start rugging our horses?

    Is it time to start rugging our horses?

    Is it time to start rugging our horses?
    The temperature is dropping, and we're all feeling the cold, but when does our horse feel the cold, and when do they need a rug to keep warm?
    Dr David Marlin explains the fundamentals of how the horse's own "central heating" system works and what they do to stay warm, and how their bodies are affected by the weather. What are the horse's copying mechanisms, are they better equipped to deal with colder temperatures?
    Learn the basics in determining if your horse needs a rug on (yet) or not.
    Make sure you visit the website DrDavidMarlin.com and follow the social channels to find out more and join the discussion.
