About the Event

Horse behaviour problems are a common complaint of both horse owners and equine veterinarians.

Specific issues in horses are best addressed by qualified experts. However, while most people know to contact a veterinarian when their horse is ill or lame, some uncertainty still remains about where people should turn when a horse has a behaviour problem.

To complicate matters, hiring an unqualified professional can result in worsening of existing problems or even the creation of new problems. How are horse owners or referring veterinarians to know which professional is the most appropriate one to hire in these situations?

In this webinar, equine behaviour consultants Justine Harrison and Lauren Fraser will discuss different aspects of horse behaviour consulting, and what people should know before hiring or referring to a professional to address horse behaviour problems.

It will cover topics such as:

• An introduction to the profession of horse behaviour consultant

• The education and experience required

• Different models of behaviour consulting

• The role of veterinary referral in a consultant’s work

• The consultation process

• How consultants determine why the problem behaviour is occurring

• Common horse behaviour problems

• Behaviour modification techniques

• Training techniques to be avoided

This presentation is for horse owners, equine veterinarians and other paraprofessionals who work in the equine industry. It will also be useful for anyone considering a career in horse behaviour consulting.

After the presentation, Justine and Lauren will answer questions.
