Equine behaviour modification techniques for veterinary practice
Slad Lane, Speen
About this course
This BEVA approved course is for veterinary professionals
dealing with horses in practice. It will develop the practitioner’s skills in
handling difficult horses using the objective, evidence-based principles of
equitation science. It will review equine ethology and learning theory and
explain how these principles can be used to address behavioural problems
encountered by veterinary professionals in their day-to-day work, for example
when handling needle/clipper shy horses or horses that won’t go into
stocks/vehicles. Upon completion of this course delegates will understand how to apply
effective, humane handling techniques that can be used in any setting. This
course includes demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions so delegates
have the opportunity to practice many of the techniques themselves.
This one-day course will be run on both Tuesday 27th June and Wednesday 28th June 2017.
