The First European Practitioners Symposium on Equine Reproduction (ESER-2018) was organized on Feb 8-9, 2018 at the Veterinary Faculty at the University of Gent, Belgium and consisted of two days of lectures and panel-discussions. Thirteen top-experts in different areas of equine reproduction shared their knowledge and experience with the 220 participating veterinarians representing all European countries, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Kuwait, Mexico, USA and Tunisia. Speakers included Patrick McCue, James Crabtree, Marco Alvarenga, Jesper M°ller Nielsen, Dominik Burger, Harald Sieme, Anthony Claes, Tom Stout, Jean-Franšois Bruyas, Carolina Herrera, Marco Livini, Richard Newton and Marc Meyer, who all generously donated their time and effort to make this first European ISER fundraiser a tremendous success.
