It is with great sadness that we bring you the news of the passing of…
Join us on Wednesday 14th June for a fascinating webinar with Clinical Animal Behaviourist, Loni Loftus. Loni will present a case study involving a rescue pony taken into a welfare charity as part of a large hoarding case.
The pony presented with significant fear of humans, having lived unhandled in an owned herd since birth. Loni will discuss relevant history, differential diagnosis, the behaviour modification programme, and the outcome of the case. This case highlights the complexities of working with horses and ponies who have suffered prior trauma. Video footage will be shown demonstrating the behaviours and techniques used to improve the pony’s emotional and behavioural responses to people and handling.
By the end of the webinar delegates will have enhanced their understanding of how horses can develop fear responses to humans, the differential diagnostic principles associated with equine behavioural cases, and treatment modalities appropriate for horses with prior trauma.
Date: Wednesday 14th June
Time: 7.30pm to 9.00pm including Q&A
If you can’t attend live, the webinar will be recorded and delegates will have 3 months to watch the recording.
