Vehicles have got faster but the horse has stayed the same speed: Equestrian road safety from a UK perspective
Presented by Dee Pollard Research Analyst The British Horse Society

Biography: Dee is a Veterinary Epidemiologist interested in equine health and welfare topics, particularly the interaction between horses and humans. Dee finished her undergraduate BSc (Hons) degree at Rhodes University in South Africa, followed by a MSc in Animal Breeding and Genetics from Wageningen University (The Netherlands) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, investigating inherited disorders in horses. In 2013 Dee started a World Horse Welfare-funded laminitis PhD offered by the Royal Veterinary College. This saw her make the move to the Animal Health Trust, where she spent 7 years, taking on a post-doc position after the completion of her PhD. Dee’s PhD and post-doc work looked at the epidemiology of laminitis in Great Britain and what we can do to help reduce the risk. Dee currently works at the British Horse Society as a researcher and completed a Department for Transport-funded project investigating the perceptions and attitudes to road safety by equestrians in the UK. Dee also works as an independent consultant, helping fellow researchers and veterinary surgeons with study design, methodology and statistical analysis.
