Learn how horses are bred.
 
Horse reproduction may be a natural process, but without a foundation knowledge of how horses breed and the dangers faced by animals during pregnancy and birth; there are big risks that exist to both the mother and foal. Understanding horse breeding helps the horse owner or farm manager to minimise risk to animals and have a lesser or greater degree of control over the type of animal being produced.

Study Equine Behaviour

  • Enrol and commence studying anytime
  • Work at your own pace and focus on things of greater interest to you.
  • Great tutors , highly qualified, and with years of experience stand ready to support you every step of the way
It is assumed that all animal behaviour is an adaptation designed to support survival, either directly or indirectly. However, this is not always the case. Animals can behave self-destructively, out of habit, or out of boredom, just as humans can. To better understand the behaviour, we should also consider what motivates it.

The study of equine behaviour provides a foundation for more sensitive and informed care and training of horses, and can help you understand your horse's behaviour, and work more effectively with its inherent nature.
