Equine behaviour modification techniques for the veterinary practitioner

One day CPD courses for equine veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses on behaviour modification techniques for the practitioner. Enhance your  skills in handling difficult horses using the objective, evidence-based principles of equitation science. The course will review equine ethology and learning theory and explain how these principles can be used to address behavioural problems commonly encountered in practice, for example when handling needle/clipper shy horses or horses that won’t go into stocks/vehicles. The 2013 BEVA accident survey highlighted the high occurrence of accidents affecting equine veterinary practitioners and the need for training in methods that practitioners can employ to remain safe when working with horses. Upon completion of this course delegates will be able to apply effective, humane handling techniques that can be used in any setting.

DESCRIPTION:

This course is for veterinary professionals dealing with equids in practice and 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. The 2013 BEVA accident survey highlighted the high incidence of accidents affecting equine veterinary surgeons and the need for training in methods that practitioners can employ to remain safe when working with horses. 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.

 

 

PRACTICAL SESSIONS:
This course will have a strong emphasis on hands-on practical sessions. The speakers will demonstrate how behaviour modification techniques can be used to address behavioural problems commonly encountered by equine veterinary surgeons, and then the delegates will be split into small groups and be given the opportunity to practice many of the techniques themselves.
