Course of lineal evaluation of the PRE - Central Spain
From the 24th to 16th of January, the 2nd Lineal Evaluation Course, organized by ANCCE, took place at the Yeguada Centurion. The organization and collaboration of the aforementioned stud farm was excellent, as well as the facilities where the course took place. A total of forty horses were used for the measuring practice, which had previously been measured by professors from the University of Cordoba School of Veterinary Science. The genetics department at the University has continuously offered advice about the contents, design and operation of these courses. The days were marathons, starting each morning at 9 am and concluding each evening at 8 pm. They were divided into theory and practical sessions that concluded in the final exam on Sunday the 26th. There were twenty-two participants in the course, including breeders, veterinarians and riders from the central and northern area of Spain, as well as from Eastern Andalusia. For the moment, this course concludes those planned by ANCCE to incorporate lineal appraisers into the PRE selection scheme.
