Managing Equine Health Free Online Course

Hi everyone!  A recent email from CAFRE I feel is worth sharing:

Learn how to keep your horse healthy with a new online course

Managing Equine Health is the next topic to be covered in the suite of online CAFRE courses for horse owners. This course will follow on from the first online Equine Health workshop and look at further conditions which horse owners and managers have to deal with. The course will cover some of the internal systems of the horse to give a greater understanding of the conditions which affect them. Parasites which affect horses and a parasite management system will also be discussed in the course. Learners can access the lectures at any time during their scheduled week.  Upon completion of all parts of the course participants will gain a certificate of completion from CAFRE.

The course will be live from Wednesday 4th March and run over three weeks, with a new lecture each week. The course is free of charge and participants must enrol online by 26th February 2015 by following this link http://www.cafre.ac.uk/industry-support/industry-training/ or call 028 9442 6880 for further information.

I’ve done 3 courses with CAFRE so far and find them to be really well run, informative and a great refresher on previously known knowledge as well as a great update on new knowledge!  And of course, I love that I get a certificate at the end 😉

“The Horse’s Prayer – I’m only a horse, dear Master, but my heart is warm and true,
And I’m ready to work my hardest, for the pleasure of pleasing you. Good corn, and hay, and water, are all that I wish to ask. And a warm dry bed to rest on, when I’ve finished my daily task. Don’t strike me in needless anger if I’m slow to understand,
But encourage my drooping spirits with a gentle voice and hand. Finally, O my master! When my health and strength are gone – When I’m getting old and feeble, and my long life’s work is done – Don’t sell me to cruel owners, to be slaved to my latest breath,
But grant me the untold blessing of a quick and painless death;
That, as you have always found me a patient and loyal friend,
The years of my faithful service may be crowned by a peaceful end. I plead in the name of the Savoir, Who cares when the sparrows fall. Who was born in a lowly stable, and knows, and loves us all!” – Author unknown

Use Free Resources

There are so many different events, products and services that are available to each of us in the equine industry, free of charge.  If you’re an avid horse owner or career person, I encourage you to take advantage of them to better yourself as an educated equine individual.

Last week Saddleworld in Wangaratta hosted a John Kohnke event at the National Centre for Equine Education.  This was free to the public and covered 2.5 invaluable hours of information from a well known vet and nutritionist.  I learnt so much that is particularly applicable at this time of year as I am dealing with an older pony who has foundered.  Kohnke covered laminitis well on the evening as well as many other nutritional issues that are applicable in Australia at this time of year.

If you are aware of events that are being offered for free, why not go along?

Often products are given as door prizes, fact sheets are provided and of course there’s your memory of the event and the opportunity to take your own notes on what you feel is relevant to you.  Never mind that such an event is also a great networking chance for horse people in the area.

One fact sheet that may be of interest to you that is provided online for free is Nutrition of the Aged Horse by Dr John Kohnke.

Many free resources have been explored on this blog as they help you to manage horses or be educated regarding their care.  Take a look at the following:
