The Shoulder, Elbow and Forearm module uses clinical case presentations and live demonstrations and aims to improve the diagnosis and management of many of the proximal forelimb conditions encountered in the field. The module provides 20 hours of instruction and includes three hours of practice on live horses under the supervision of certified instructors.


Conditions reviewed include shoulder conditions, elbow conditions, and forearm conditions. Special emphasis is made on the rehabilitation program of the different conditions.

Dr. Bart Halsberghe is a 2003 graduate from the University of Ghent, Belgium. Since then, he has focused his veterinary career on equine sports medicine and rehabilitation working with thoroughbred racehorses and sport horses in different countries. In 2018 he started his own practice “Global Equine Veterinary Consulting”.
Dr. Bart Halsberghe is a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in Equine practice, as well as being a certified I.S.E.L.P member. Always looking to broaden his horizon, he has expanded his knowledge over the years through several certification and continuing education programs mainly in complementary medicine, rehabilitation and straightness training. He is currently certified in equine rehabilitation, veterinary medical acupuncture, veterinary spinal manipulative therapy, and a kinesio taping. He combines all this experience to offer true integrated veterinary medicine, a whole body approach, looking at every part of the horse from different perspectives.



Billy Hodge, DVM, MRCVS, Certified in Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP)

Dr. William Hodge graduated from Liverpool Veterinary School in England in May 2007. Upon graduation, he quickly turned his focus to the equine athlete. In the UK, he worked on pleasure horses and sport horses of all backgrounds under the supervision of several diplomats and experienced clinicians before joining a referral equine clinic. There he worked with eventers, show jumpers and pleasure horses evaluating lamenesses using digital imaging (bone scan, ultrasound, radiography and MRI) with a focus on therapy and regeneration of injuries. When he returned to North America, he spent several years working predominantly with race horses and sport horses in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Dr. Hodge is the author of a novel technique of alcohol-fusion in the lower hock joint as a therapy for chronic lameness in horses. His interest in poor performance and equine medicine has also been a large focus of his career carrying out emergency medicine/care, colic management, anaesthesia, gastroscopy, abdominal and thoracic ultrasound and routine dentistry. He also spent several years at a large stud farm in the UK providing reproductive services.

However, his focus has remained largely on lameness, diagnostics and return of the equine athlete to previous performance. He continues to search for novel techniques and rehabilitation regimes for horses with soft tissue injuries of the distal and proximal limb. Billy completed his ISELP certification in 2017 and is now the second veterinarian in Canada with ISELP certification.

Nick Kleider, DVM, DACVSMR, Certified in Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP)

Dr. Nick Kleider’s interest in horses and sports medicine related problems grew out of his own competitive experiences with sport horses. Nick grew up with horses and developed a major interest in eventing which culminated being long listed for the Canadian Equestrian team in 1974. Since then, he has trained and competed multiple horses up to intermediate and advanced levels and competed internationally. In 2014, he was the Horse Trials British Columbia’s preliminary champion on Garrow’s Law.

Instinct and intuition, honed by nearly four decades working with race and sport horses, enables Nick to evaluate many subtle performance issues and take on a variety of locomotor puzzles. Academic curiosity and the drive to challenge himself has cultivated an interest in diagnostic imaging and he became the first veterinarian in Canada to receive internationally recognized ISELP certification in 2012.

In 2013, Nick documented a technique for how to inject the stifle joint using ultrasound guidance and published the paper that was presented at the American Association of Equine Practitioners conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Always furthering his education, he frequently attends international conferences and workshops as well as often being invited as a guest speaker.

In 2018 Nick completed specialized training in the clinical management and rehabilitation of sport horses and became a diplomate of the ACVSMR. This rigorous training makes him an official sports medicine specialist.
