people iconWho is the course for?

This course is designed for all veterinarians and nurses that want to learn how to incorporate evidence based behavioural modification into their daily work.

book iconAbout the Course

Working as an equine veterinarian is one of the most dangerous civilian profession to be employed within, with the majority of injuries a direct result of the horses behaviour. However, these are normal behavioural responses to an acute stressor for this species. This course will give you a practical understanding of how learning theory can be employed to develop a safer and less stressful working relationship with your patients. Furthermore, we will begin to explore how to investigate the horse that presents with unwanted ridden behaviour. Is it due to pain, behaviour or both.
