BHS Welfare Conference – Stressed out? The Causes, Effects and Prevention of Stress in the Horse and Rider
Stress is a natural response and can either be a precursor to achievement or can be detrimental to physical and/or mental well-being.
For some individuals, including horses and humans, the coping mechanisms to deal with stress are inhibited and the function to operate successfully becomes restrained. Improving an individual’s ability to cope with times of stress or preventing stressful exposure will help improve the welfare of the horse and confidence of the handler and rider.
The BHS is delighted to present this year’s welfare conference - Stressed out? The Causes, Effects and Prevention of Stress in the Horse and Rider - which is being held on Thursday 1 September 2016 at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire. Registration will open from 8am with a fully packed day until approximately 5pm.
