We welcome Gayle Ecker, from Equine Guelph to chat with us about Equine Welfare and the relevance of considering it from the equine’s perspective. Equine Guelph is the horse owner’s Centre at the University of Guelph, supported and overseen by equine industry groups, and dedicated to improving the health and well-being of horses! Discussing equine welfare can be challenging. We have different perspectives and our responses to various issues can often be emotional. Join us!
When it comes to small horse acreages, there’s more stress on feed, more pressure on fencing, more routine maintenance. But with proper management and “know-how”, small acreages can be healthy and productive, and meet your horse’s needs mentally and physically. Join us to chat being responsible for the horse's welfare on small acreages!
Striving for the most natural solutions for the mental and physical wellbeing of the horse is essential and provides huge benefits to your horse’s fitness and emotional stability. Mary is highly knowledgeable in rehabilitative care, foaling, riding, facilitating and instructing with a complete wellness component being the priority at all times.
Hoof Care focuses on working with the horse, not against them. When it comes to farrier work, it is essential in looking at the horse as a whole. A job well done not only means that the trim is successful and the shoes are well suited and well fit, but the experience has been positive for the horse and he’s a little better because of it.
Understanding “making the wrong thing hard and the right thing easy”, is often hard for us as people, as it is all about allowing the horse to have control. In a sense, as people, we’re control freaks. We want to control the horse, but really in order to get along with horses really well, the first thing we've got to do and it's hard a lot of the time is to give up that need to control the situation. Listen in!
How do mindset and emotional agility play a role in working with our horses? Learning to manage your mind and emotions not only benefits us but also benefits your horse and Jane Pike from Confident Rider has the key to success with this! Take a listen…
We all have the answers to our own lives, but sometimes it takes some different ways to get to them. At Equine Connection, that way is with a horse. Yup, you heard it right! Horses can bring out a whole new aspect to learning and bring about all kinds of life changes!
