Advisory Board

Horses in the morning mistMembers of the Townsend Equine Health Research Fund’s advisory board represent different aspects of Western Canada’s horse industry and serve as valuable links between the region’s equine interests and the College. These volunteer members also provide guidance and assistance to the TEHRF management committee throughout the year.
