Learn how to understand a horse’s behaviour and attempts to communicate when you take this fascinating Equine Psychology course. Understanding why a foal or stallion continually makes noises or repetitive movements can make a significant difference to their health and happiness. You can reap the benefits of years of studies performed by researchers, as they recorded the natural activities of these beloved animals by enrolling for this tuition. This innovative course provides valuable insight into the ethology (natural behavioural studies) of horses and what we can learn from actions or attitudes. You will understand the significance of whinnies, anatomical details, and the prevalent activities of young and old animals. In addition to that information, you will also be taught how to bond with individual horses, recognise unique characteristics, train them to overcome fears, spot changes in social behaviour, and identify significant alterations to their movements. This course provides valuable knowledge for all horse-lovers, whether you are a trainer, rider, or owner.
Please note that this course does not entitle you to join the HCPC register or recognised Practitioner Psychologists. But you will come across all the basic guidelines of Psychology to boost and shine your knowledge in this particular field of Psychology.
