Founder of MB Equine Services, Mariette van den Berg, travelled in June this year to Europe to attend two very special equine science conferences - the European Workshop on Equine Nutrition (EWEN) and the International Society for Equitation Science (ISES) Conference. At both of these conferences, Mariette presented results from her PhD project that focuses on behavioural mechanisms of diet selection by horses. 

In this series, she features a selection of interesting topics and findings from research projects presented at the 8th bi-annual EWEN, which was held in Dijon, France.
