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
