Ocala, FL(October 20, 2014) — It’s no surprise that a symposium called “Achieving Peak Performance in the Equine Athlete” had the General Manager of The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center, Brenda McDuffee, in attendance. The Sanctuary is known for staying on the cutting edge of advanced therapeutic and rehabilitating procedures for equines. With state-of-the-art equipment, knowledgeable and certified staff, and a passion for bringing out horses’ full potentials, The Sanctuary is continuously striving to make the best even better.
“Achieving Peak Performance in the Equine Athlete” was the Florida Association of Equine Practitioners (FAEP)’s 10th Annual Promoting Excellence Symposium. The event was held in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, on October 9-12, 2014. FAEP, like The Sanctuary, is extremely dedicated to staying current with the ever-changing technologies and medicines in the equine health industry. The organization has made providing continuous education about equine health its mission. Attendees of the 10th Annual Promoting Excellence Symposium learned about the most effective treatments for countless equine diseases and injuries.
The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center, based in Ocala, Florida, has had a long relationship with the FAEP. McDuffee explains “We have been involved with FAEP since we opened— as a trustee for our first few years, and as a host facility for the UF Student Appreciation Day each year. In 2011, FAEP started adding a Rehabilitation tract to their seminars, and we sponsored it the first year and I have attended the seminar each year since. We have also been a vendor at the symposiums for several years.” McDuffee wishes to thank FAEP for hosting another great symposium this year, adding “We truly appreciate being able to be involved with such an outstanding organization.”
Continuous education in up-to-date medical, therapeutic, and rehabilitating practices is extremely important to The Sanctuary because the center believes that the horses it treats should receive the absolute best care possible. “Achieving Peak Performance in the Equine Athlete” is The Sanctuary’s daily business. The Sanctuary’s facility contains above-ground water treadmills, cold saltwater leg spa treatment, laser therapy, an equine swimming pool, vibration plate therapy, solarium therapy, electromagnetic pulse therapy, and a respiratory machine amongst other conditioning and rehabilitating equipment.
