Webinar: Promoting positive equine wellbeing and behaviour through diet

We welcomed equine behaviourist Rosa Verwijs back to speak with us regarding exactly how excellent feeding methods can promote favorable behavior in our horses.

Rosa discusses why forage needs to be the almost all of every steed’s diet, and also why specific behaviors may show up if a steed does not get a sufficient amount. Rosa additionally discuss exactly how we can best manage our equines to guarantee they have as much chewing time as possible. When we have equines calling for restricted nutritional consumption or in circumstances where equines might spend more time inside than out, she talked about just how this can be balanced. Rosa was joined by fellow equine behaviourist Justine Harrison to address inquiries from the online audience regarding equine behaviour as well as how feeding practices can influence their wellness as well as psychological health.
