and to collaborate with professional colleagues in the most effective way.
The syllabus includes: assessment of pain and welfare;
equine behaviour and its relevance to pain; pharmacological treatment of pain;
physical techniques including physiotherapy and acupuncture; the input of the
farrier, the saddler and the chiropractic practitioner; the biomechanics of
pain and lameness (horse and rider); practice at devising treatment plans and
adapting these through follow up.
