What if your horse could tell you what’s wrong with him?

Well maybe he can! How to Recognize the 24 Behaviors indicating Pain in the Ridden Horse gives you the tools to understanding what your horse is telling you through his facial expressions and whole body behaviors.

World-renowned veterinarian and researcher, Dr Sue Dyson shows you how it is possible to determine the presence of musculoskeletal pain in ridden horses by facial expressions or other aspects of behavior.

Many horses appear sound in hand but have underlying pain-related musculoskeletal problems when ridden – which frequently go unrecognized. If you are a vet, a trainer, a horse owner or someone who wants the best for yourself and your horse, this course is for you. 

Through videos, quizzes, learning aids, downloadable materials, and practical exercises, this course will give you the tools you need to identify underlying pain-related problems even if they are not initially obvious. You will be able to use the knowledge gained through this course when you are assessing a horse which has presented because of poor performance, or when a horse is undergoing a pre-purchase examination. If you are a horse owner, it can help you detect pain early so that it can be put right before it becomes chronic and the horse starts to adapt its movement in other ways resulting in more problems. It will also help you to clarify if tension or unwillingness are behavior-related or pain-based behaviors.

This course has been developed through extensive research over two years involving six studies and 400 horses. We believe it will change the way we identify problems with our horses.

A ground breaking resource for equine professionals and amateurs – this course will change the way we identify problems with our horses.
