Peerdepieten is the most spectacular event that the Diergeneeskundige Studenten Kring organises every year. With an average of 1000 visitors, it is also the biggest event. With already the 64th edition in the offing, this beautiful tradition seems to be the most normal thing in the world. However, there was a time when the birthday, also known as Dies Natalis, of the D.S.K. was not celebrated in this way. Until one Until a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon in May 1958…

The then Praeses, Gerben de Boer, challenged the Utrechtse Paardensport Vereniging to a race between the two associations. Driving a trotter from a sulky had to be child’s play, Gerben de Boer thought. To prove itself, the first Peerdepietenkoers took place a few weeks later. The name derived from the insult that the Utrecht veterinary students had for their Belgian colleagues: Peerdepiet. Like a real veterinary student, Gerben de Boer was an all-rounder and won the very first Peerdepietenkoers, held at Mereveld.

Now, many years later, Peerdepieten has become the most beautiful event of the year. It can no longer be ignored in the life of the veterinary student. This year, the battle will be between three gentlemen and seven ladies. They have been working up a sweat since December to win the coveted title of Peerdepetra or Peerdepiet. The day will be concluded with a fantastic party, after which everyone will leave for Utrecht.

Podoblock is happy to be sponsor of one this traditional and spectacular event.

Because of Covid this anniversary convention was postponed for 2 years.

The Dutch Association for Teeth Care in the Horse was founded in 2010. Meanwhile, the association has about 180 members, consisting of both dental hygienists and vets. The purpose of the association is, among other things, to have dental hygienists work more intensively together with vets and vice versa, but also to be able to train, network and exchange knowledge on a regular basis.

The conference is accredited with the IAED and the dutch veterinairy board.

IGFP-Congress 2022

The IGFP aims to promote and develop knowledge and skills in equine dentistry and its implementation in equine dental treatment. Equine dental care in Germany must achieve a quality standard that serves the health and rideability of our horses. The IGFP has set itself this goal in its statutes. The certified members of the association have undergone a voluntary 2 to 3-day practical and theoretical examination, which is intended to clarify the quality standards of their work and correspond to American and Canadian standards.

Podoblock is an annual sponsor of the IGFP congress, and this year, we will be there with a booth (Location number 6 ) during the course days at the exhibition hall with our complete Equine Dental product program to display.

The exhibition days will be from Friday 11 till Saturday 12 March 2022. Learn more about the event here.
