Behavioural Consultations

I offer a confidential behavioural consultation service for those experiencing behavioural issues with their horses.

 

My aim is to help you explore the underlying cause of behaviour to understand why the behaviour is happening and then look at what we can do to resolve the issue through implementing a behaviour modification programme.

 

I adopt a relationship based, Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) approach and aim to minimize the stress involved for both the horse and the human.

 

Issues include anxious or fearful horses, those with vet or needle phobias, problems with the farrier, trailer loading, tack issues, issues with box rest and many other behavioural issues.

 

Please contact me to discuss your specific case.
 

What to expect:

  • Firstly I will ask you to fill in a background form for your horse.

  • Once I have received this, we will book a call to discuss this further and I will contact your vet.

  • Next is the in person consultation. At this appointment we will talk through your horse’s current issues and what may be contributing towards this issue. We will then discuss a programme to work through your horses behavioural problems.

  • I work under veterinary referral and will contact your vet before the consultation where possible to gain referral. If you’re scheduled to speak with your vet before our appointment, please let me know.

  • Please note – I am only qualified to give advice on behavioural issues, and will not be able to give advice on any physical issues.

 

What is needed at the appointment:

  • Your horse in their usual environment (field or stable fine), preferably with their usual equine company present

  • Any facilities or equipment that we have spoken about or pertain to the situation

  • A quiet and relatively private area for us to talk

  • Other people who are involved in your horse are welcome to be present

 

Fees:

The fee for this process is £75.

This fee is split with £15 due at the time of the remote call and £60 due at the in person consultation.

 

This fee covers:

  • Up to 2 hours behavioural consultation on the day of your appointment

  • Tailored behaviour modification plan

  • Liaison with the vet before and after the consultation if required

  • Post meeting support with weekly check ins for the first 4 weeks

  • Travel within 20 miles, 40p/mile thereafter

Further training follow ups are available and are priced at £30 an hour
