Our Courses

Our Equine Behaviour Courses aim to equip students with the knowledge & skills to manage, handle & train horses, keeping both their mental and physical welfare in mind.

Our courses are for anyone who wants to learn more about equine behaviour. Whether you are a horse owner or a professional in the equine industry; for anyone who spends time with horses, our courses are essential!!

We also offer 'Beyond Behaviourism' webinars every 3 months, free to supporting members for the first year 

Applied Behaviour Course

This encourages students to understand the behavioural needs of horses as a species, and assess each horse as an individual. Evaluating the quality of their environment, their physical and mental welfare, how to train with the horse in mind and how to assess and work with unwanted behaviours.
