The award for the best theses, which are written at the nationwide colleges on horseback, takes place every year during the FN conference, which took place this year in Magdeburg. This competition is organized by the society for the promotion of science around the horse.
Second place was taken by the master thesis of Vanessa Timm (Clausthal-Zellerfeld), which she supervises at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, supervised by Prof. Dr. med. Angel Hessel, wrote. Her topic: "Entry of horse baskets in riding grounds: Influence on the development of microorganisms and the generation of suspended particles as a function of the soil composition". She noted that while horse riding aids in riding grounds promote the development of microorganisms, they do not lead to increased particulate matter generation.
