Services and Prices

Behaviour consultations: Consultations cost £70 for the initial consultation, which includes a full report, step-by-step guides for behaviour modification and back-up telephone advice. Further consultations are available and priced according to individual requirements. Many insurance policies will cover behavioural consultation fees.

I don’t charge travel expenses unless you are more than 45 mins away by car so I cover Surrey, parts of Sussex, Kent and surrounding areas but can sometimes travel further: contact me for a quotation.

Behaviour lessons: If you don’t have a particular problem with your horse, or don’t own a horse, but just want to learn more about equine behaviour then I can run one-off or regular lessons. Individual sessions - £40 for 1 hour lessons; regular lessons only available in Surrey.  Discounts per person for up to ten people. You don’t necessarily need a horse for these lessons. Can be tailored for adults, teenagers or children.

Nervous about hacking? During a consultation we can draw up a personalised programme for you that will gradually build up your confidence and teach your horse to be less ‘spooky’; if you need that extra bit of help we can work through it together through regular visits. First consultation £70 and further visits priced according to time/requirements/location.

One-to-one clicker training sessions: £45 for the first session (longer to discuss aims and if clicker training is appropriate for you and your horse) and then £35 for lessons (1 hour). This is only available for some areas local to me.

Careers advice and work experience: I am unable to take work experience students to consultations with me as I am not insured for this. However, if you are interested in a career as a behaviourist I am happy to spend a morning or afternoon with you to discuss what it means to be an equine behaviourist, or other related careers. I can come to visit you, or you can come to me. Costs £40 for a three hour session, if more than one person this will be cheaper per person. If you live too far away but would still like some advice we can speak by phone - £5 for half an hour of advice and discussion.

Lectures and workshops: Learning About Animals can offer talks on a variety of topics including equine behaviour around the country by a number of speakers. Rates for 2 hour presentations vary between £50 and £200 (split between everyone it’s not very much at all!) according to where you are and length of talk. Workshops cost around £200-£600 per day depending on location and speaker required.

Topics include:

- An introduction to horse behaviour
- Considering different training methods
- Equine body language
- Enrichment and shaping workshop
- An introduction to learning theory
- Abnormal behaviours in the horse
- How to make a difference for horses
- Exploring welfare
