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! From horse owners, grooms, riding instructors, livery yard managers, vets – anyone who spends time with horses, our courses are essential!!

Equine Behaviour Foundation 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.

After completing and passing the full Equine Behaviour Foundation Course, you may apply to attend the Professional Behaviourist Training to complete your training and become an EBA Accredited Behaviourist. The course is a mixture of classroom work, with mentoring on client calls, shadowing other behaviourists and project work.
