Where: Duchy College, Cornwall
We will explore the principles of equine behaviour, learn the subtle signs that horses
use to tell use they are anxious, navigate the range of training methods you might
come across and much more including a demonstration. The session will be led by
equine behaviourist and animal welfare consultant Suzanne Rogers.
Duchy students: For those studying at Duchy there is the unique opportunity for extra
time after lunch exploring what being an equine behaviourist involves with a focus
on the human elements - we will discuss the qualities you need to have as a person
to be effective in this career and explore what does and does not make people change
their behaviour with respect to horses. Suzanne is the co-leader of the Human Behaviour
Change for Animals project (www.hbcanimalwelfare.com).
