KAROLINA WESTLUND PhD

EQUINES, EMOTIONS & BEHAVIOUR

Karolina Westlund PhD, a specialist in animal ethology, with a multidisciplinary interest including affective experiences, behaviour and training, delves into the science of emotions - what they are, how they are experienced by equines, and how that is shown in the behaviours that we see. Understanding how interconnected affective states are to behavioural output adds another element of consideration to our exploration of the 'whole horse'. This is sure to be a fascinating presentation, with Q&A after to deepen our understanding of the equines we work and share our lives with.

REBECCAH BAYLISS

SELF-SELECTION & BOTANICALS

Have you ever watched your Horse nibble at the hedgerow and wondered what he is eating and why?
Have you ever seen your Dog eat grass and wondered why? The use of herbs has been around for thousands of years and at times provided the only available treatment. Animals have the ability to self –medicate on herbs and oils via taste and smell, picking up on the components of the plants.

In this talk Rebeccah Baylis looks at herbal self selection in our animals....

Rebeccah Baylis from Little Green Stables (LGS) LGS offers a whole animal approach to health, wellness, maintenance and performance: Becky is a qualified Veterinary Physiotherapist and Herbal Consultant working with Zoopharmacognosy, holding further Certificates in Myofascial release (MFR), Equine and Canine Massage, Acupressure and Mobilisation.

DR EMILY KIESON & JESSIE SAMS

EQUINE COMMUNICATION VS TRAINING STYLES

This webinar examines the differences between training and horse-human communication. While any interaction between two animals can be considered communication, we will be looking closely at the interactions used in training, the goals around our interactions, and how this does or doesn’t line up with our ideas of communication and equine ethology.


This webinar will include:
- Analysis of operant conditioning in training
- Dissecting the application of associative learning in operant

   conditioning
- Exploration of horse communication and social strategies
- Comparisons of social strategies with training practices – where do

  they match up and where do they differ.
- Recognizing responses from horses in training and how this relates

  differently to training than to communication.
- Methods to combine communication with management and training.
- Creating new approaches to balancing training with social

  communication strategies

DR DOROTHY HEFFERNAN

UNDERSTANDING BIAS WHEN ENCOURAGING HUMAN BEHAVIOUR CHANGE

Dorothy explores the role of unconscious bias in our interactions with and attitudes towards our equines, and delves into how we can best understand it to encourage a shift in human behaviour. This is ultimately of huge benefit to the animals that we live and work with, but is often a difficult area to overcome.

About Dorothy:
Dorothy is a positive reinforcement trainer, ethologist and psychologist, endorsed by the World Bitless Association and the Pet Professional Guild, and member of IEP. She is a passionate advocate of making the science of learning theory accessible to both equine owners and professionals, in order that people can gain a deeper understanding of equine behaviour, and ultimately improve relationships with their companions.

Dorothy is a keen blogger on all things equine and shares are valuable experience and knowledge via her own blog Horses Under Our Skin. She is also one of the four woman team who have created Positive Equine Training Scotland. PETS provides a wide range of services using positive reinforcement to help owners with their training and a variety of husbandary behaviours, all enhancing the relationship with their equines

CATHERINE BRADLEY EPA

ANGLING FOR A SOUNDER HORSE

Taking a closer look at factors influencing hoof balance and the effects of different types of hoof balance on the horse.

 

  • What is hoof balance and what influences it​

  • Types of hoof balance and how they effect the horse​

  • How do angles come into all of this?



About your Presenter:

Catherine qualified as an Equine Podiatrist in 2015 and is a member of the Equine Podiatrist Association(UK). As well as trimming for Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue, Catherine works with equids from all walks of life and is passionate about giving a positive hoof care experience to all.

"As an Equine Podiatrist, I work with barefoot equines, and those making the transition to barefoot. I can remove shoes, but not replace them! My services incorporate a force-free holistic approach to hoof care, considering the equine’s diet, environment, and exercise as well as trimming.  I have experience working with acute laminitis, navicular, severe trauma to the hoof capsule, conformational abnormalities, and gait abnormalities causing unusual hoof growth to name a few and have also worked with youngsters having their first trim to traumatised equines with a fear of hoof-handling."

"I am a member of the Equine Podiatry Association UK which means that I am qualified (I have a diploma in Equine Podiatry and trained with Equine Podiatry Training Ltd), insured, and carry out a minimum of 40 hours CPD every year.  I am currently studying for an MSc in Equine Science with the University of Edinburgh."​
