Congratulations to Rose Scofield, Abingdon & Witney College Course Leader in BSc Equine Science & Equine Science and Thoroughbred Management on the publishing of her new book, Solving Equine Behaviour Problems; an Equitation Science Approach.
In this book, Rose Scofield examines behavioural issues using the latest academic research. Offering practical solutions and with useful diagrams and photographs throughout, the book helps to protect and develop the horse-human relationship. It:
Horses can develop a range of behavioural problems, which if left untreated, could cause the relationship between horse and human to break down. With many different well-meaning opinions offered to solve such situations, it can be difficult to find the right path.
Beginning with an introduction to the main principles of equitation science, Solving Equine Behaviour Problems then covers over 30 major issues, including biting, kicking, separation anxiety, loading, shying, bucking and bolting. It provides key points, take-home messages and scientific references, translating lessons from experimental science into practical help for both equine students, professionals and the horse enthusiast.
Solving Equine Behaviour Problems is out 22nd September 2020, and can be pre-ordered here.
