Welfare Wednesday Webinar: Understanding Aggression In Horses

5 months ago

13th November, 2023 22h48

World Horse Welfare

On Wednesday 15 November at 7pm we welcome equine ethologist Renate Larssen to our Welfare Wednesday Webinars to discuss the challenging topic of aggression in horses. Renate will explain what equine aggression is, explore why horses may become aggressive and then consider what we can do about managing any such behaviours. Along the way, Renate will dispel common myths around equine aggression and talk through some case studies. 

As part of this topic Renate will look at the evolutionary advantage of aggression in horses, the difference between purpose and cause, how emotions drive behaviour and introduce the Equine Ladder of Aggression

As always, the team will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have at the end of the webinar.

By registering for the webinars through Zoom, you will be able to take part in the various polls, ask questions during the Q&A and enjoy an interactive experience. If you are keen to be part of the conversation for this webinar on 15 November, then please REGISTER HERE  

The webinars are free to attend and if you are unable to attend via Zoom they can also be viewed as a Facebook Live session. If you have missed any of the ever-increasing programme of previous webinars - which have covered subjects as fascinating and diverse as keeping horses fit, weight management, euthanasia, biosecurity, horse mental wellbeing and travelling - they are all available to watch on the World Horse Welfare Advice Pages

More about the presenter: Renate Larssen MSc is an ethologist specialised in equine behaviour. She combines research with public outreach and behavioural consultancy work, and has a special interest in rehabilitating severe aggression cases.
