It is with great sadness that we bring you the news of the passing of…
Are you working towards becoming a registered equine Clinical Animal Behaviourist? Are you interested in equine behaviour and approaches used to manage behaviour problems? If the answer is yes, then The Horse Trust’s equine Clinical Animal Behaviour webinars are for you!
Join us for a great webinar with ABTC registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist, Jenni Nellist. Jenni will be discussing a gelding who presented with refusal and reluctance to move forward under saddle in the owner’s outdoor school.
Many efforts had been made to address the behaviours, including different riders, use of the whip and spurs, and a change of environment. However, these only served to make the behaviour worse in the school. Jenni will discuss how the behaviour developed, her behavioural assessment, the treatment plan and the outcome of the case.
During the webinar, Jenni will help attendees distinguish between potential motivations for the unwanted behaviour, and explain how learning theory and the natural behaviour of horses interact in schooling the riding horse. She will explain how she safely and effectively addressed the horse’s underlying motivation and created the desired behaviour without causing him more stress and discomfort. Jenni will also help attendees gain a deeper understanding of how horses’ coping strategies interact with equitation.
Date: Wednesday 17th August
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.
