Conduct with the horse


Taking into account the horse's state of mental and physical health

Introduction: All our courses aim to create a good relationship between man and the horse when they work together. In the course "Conduct with the horse" you will watch the work with horses who have been entrusted to us.  You will be accompanied in the stages of care and preparation of the horse so that you will improve your knowledge of the mental and physical health of the horse at work. 

Aim: To reassure clients that the mental and physical health of the horse at work is taken into account.  

A course for everyone who works with horses:  instructor, rider, jockey, lad, travelling lad, starting gate, vet, assistant vet, farrier, equine dentist and the head of an establishment.  
Riders of young horses who want to offer activities such as breaking in from the ground or ridden, or the re-education of difficult horses will be oriented towards the BEB2 or BEB3 courses. 

Course content:
