Cecilia Mûller 
Muscles or fat, how can you tell?
Cecilia Müller is Associate Professor in equine feed science at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, where she works as a researcher and teacher in equine nutrition, feeding and management. Everyday work includes e.g. teaching equine nutrition to students in animal science, veterinary science and animal nursing. Current research includes the role of hindgut microbiota in hindgut upsets suchs as colic and diarrhoea, the role of nutrition in laminitis, and suitability of different grass species in forages and pasture for horses. Cecilia has a life-long passion for horses and all things related, and has a special interest in the Arabian horse. She is a member of the Knighthood of the Academic art of Riding.

Cecilia will talk about "Muscles or fat - how can you tell?" and why it is of interest for the horse trainer. Today we are facing a too high proportion of fat horses with health issues. Many of these issues can be avoided or prevented by thinking twice about feeding, feeding level and body condition scoring. It is not fair to the horse to ask it to perform in training with a lot of extra body weight due to obesity. Cecilia will give a practical demonstration of how to body condition score a horse and how to use the result of the body condition scoring in adjusting feeding levels in order to have horse in normal body condition.
