From time to time Helen is invited to participate in research projects and she has recently taken part in one such project by Jenny Lynden from the University of Surrey. The research is exploring what role farriers may play in preventing and managing laminitis, with Helen contributing an equine vet's viewpoint. The research involved Helen being interviewed about her experiences with owners and farriers dealing with laminitis, what roles they have played and how their roles could be developed further in the future.
