Gemma is based at the Dick Vet Equine Practice, Edinburgh. She has previously lectured and demonstrated for BHS Northumberland on understanding how horses think and how learning theory can be applied to improve performance or overcome common behavioural problems and what this means for handling and ridden work.
These lectures and demonstrations have been very popular and those attending have found Gemma’s science based approach enlightening and her clear guidance on correct techniques to overcome problems highly practical.
We have therefore invited Gemma back for a further talk. We will be based in the warmth of the conference room at Kirkley Hall and Gemma will use video clips to illustrate common behavioural problems and explanations of how a horse can be handled and trained to relearn correct responses.
Seats can be reserved by emailing or phoning Fiona Gough. Also, if you have a particular issue you want to see covered, let Fiona know and she will ask Gemma to try and include this in her talk, for example problems with loading into horsebox, standing still, shoeing, separation, bucking, napping, spooking etc
Gemma’s work has recently featured in Horse and Hound’s Veterinary Clinic pages and a recent demonstration in Yorkshire will be covered in the next edition of Your Horse.
Tickets: £8 per adult; accompanied under 16s free.
Starting at 7pm and finishing at 9pm. Tea and coffee provided.
Organised by BHS Northumberland but open to all – you do not have to be a member.
