Equine Health Research Fund (EHRF)

Since 1977, the Equine Health Research Fund (EHRF) has had a tremendous influence on the quality of horse health care that's available in Western Canada and around the world. The research fund has also played a major role in making the Western College of Veterinary Medicine a national centre for horse health research and specialized training.

With grassroots support from Western Canada's horse industry, the Fund annually invests more than $100,000 in equine health research projects, a research fellowship program for graduate students, and a summer research program for undergraduate veterinary students.

The Equine Health Research Fund site includes more information about the EHRF's activities, research projects and horse health training programs. The web site also includes links to current and archived copies of Horse Health Lines — the EHRF news publication.

Each issue of Horse Health Lines includes updates about EHRF-supported research projects, profiles of WCVM researchers and EHRF donors, and horse health management information.
