This training course aims to give trainees knowledge, understanding and basic skills in the behaviour of equines. It covers the skills necessary to assess an equines behaviour in a safe and effective manner to ascertain whether it is safe to perform the required task. It also covers the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure that interactions with equines reinforce desired behaviour and do not result in setting up undesirable behaviour patterns. A good understanding of the processes of routine training will help to ensure that routine interactions with the equine complement the pre-existing training. The length of training may vary depending on the objectives covered, the ratio of trainee/instructor and the ability and previous experience of the trainees. The delivery of training covers a mix of both theory and practical elements.
