In this webinar Rachaël Draaisma introduces various forms of equine scentwork. She will dive deeper into the advantages equine scentwork gives and how they positively affect the horses physically and mentally. For instance, you will get to know why scentwork calms the horse, why it leads to less spooky behaviours, or more connection between horse and handler. Rachaël will also discuss the challenges and applicability of various scentwork exercises. Although this webinar does not give a step by step guide on how to get started on the equine scentwork exercises, it will inspire many to explore further and to add these new activities into their daily life and work with horses.
