Certificate in Equine Transport & Loading Day
- Monday, 24th March 2014.

With Caroline Baldock 9.30 - 13.00
This workshop will investigate the problems horses face when asked to load into a trailer or horsebox.
We will be schooling the horses to accept this change in environment by putting the horses through a series of desensitization exercises.
It is important to understand what concerns the horse and what reaction he is likely to have when asked to deal with these concerns.

This qualification meets the EU regulations covering the welfare of animals during transportation. It is essential for anyone travelling horses in connection with their business and also ideal for all caring and keen horse enthusiasts.
