As members, those who join the EAAP Horse Commission can participate in HC sessions at the annual Congress, held in a different European city each year. At the Congress, the commission organises sessions of relevant research interest, including Challenge Sessions (which address new or emerging issues), Discovery Sessions (on themes chosen by commission members), as well as regular Bottom-up sessions (based upon abstracts submitted). Other workshops can be held during the year, to which members are invited. In addition, members participate in the ‘Business Meeting’ at the Congress, where they can raise issues or new opportunities in research, as well as vote on the membership of the Commission Board. The Commission maintains an e-mailing list and will contact members regularly throughout the year.
