HORSE BEHAVIOUR AND TRAINING EVENTS

Barn Club

March 07, 2020

Q: How do zookeepers safely get blood samples from tigers, do dental exams on hippos, or teach giraffes to voluntarily take their medicine? A: By using cooperative care!

Cooperative care is a way to train animals to voluntarily participate in procedures, even those that may be mildly unpleasant. All animals, including horses, can be taught to voluntarily participate in all sorts of procedures, such as having blood drawn or taking dewormer.
 

This month's Barn Club will introduce you to the basics of cooperative care, in a way that you will find easy to understand. Next month, a more detailed, full-day workshop will dive deeper into cooperative care, and will also include practical, how-to information to teach your horse a cooperative care behaviour.

Barn Club is an educational monthly meet-up, where Lauren Fraser presents different topics on horse behaviour and training. Lauren Fraser is an experienced horsewoman and trainer, who is also a clinical animal behaviourist. She specializes in working with behaviour problems in horses, dogs, and cats, using effective, animal-friendly training methods. Each Barn Club event is only $10 per adult, one child aged 12-18 is free with a paying adult. Refreshments are available, please bring your own mug. Dress for the weather as we will be in the covered arena. NO DOGS OR SMOKING ON SITE. Thank you.

We use science every day to make our horse's life better. Advances in the understanding of nutrition, exercise physiology, and medical treatments help our horses live longer, healthier, and happier, lives. 

How horses learn is also a well-studied science - no different than any other science we use to make our horse's lives better. Understanding how horses learn can not only make you a more effective rider or trainer, it will help you prevent behaviour problems and give you better insight into solving existing problems.

 

This month's Barn Club will introduce you to the basics of how horses learn, in a way that you will find easy to understand. Next month, a more detailed, full-day workshop will dive deeper into this science, and will also include demonstrations by Lauren with her horses.
