This unique course was developed by veterinarians at the world-renowned University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The course will address horsemanship from a welfare perspective, within the context of “The Five Freedoms” of animal welfare. We’ll explore equine physiology, behavior and basic needs including housing, nutrition, hygiene and disease management. You’ll learn how to perform basic tasks to assess the overall condition of the horse and identify problem areas. We’ll also examine the specialized needs of the equine athlete and the major responsibilities we as owners, handlers or competitors must assume in order to ensure the health and welfare of our equine companions. Finally, we’ll look several special topics in equine welfare including disaster planning and the international welfare efforts now in place to protect working horses and other equids in key industries such as racing, international competition, tourism and even mining. By the conclusion of the course, you will be well equipped to develop a comprehensive welfare plan for any horses in your care.

Very informative and very well explained. Easy to follow for a non expert.
I am very happy I decided to do this course
I think it is a great course for those who are novice to horses. As well, it is informative to those of us who have had horses for many years.
Even with my years of horses, this is a great refresher. And I learned some new things too!!!
This course gives a better understanding of animal rights, particularly horses, their physiological management and mental well being. Thank you very much for developing this course.
