Equine Practical: Self-Medication Skills Workshop

Pre-requisite: Watch Intro and Equine recorded webinars (not included in the cost of this workshop).

Please bring appropriate clothing for a stable yard and a packed lunch/ refreshments.

Ethology and the practice of Applied Zoopharmacognosy

This is an informative and practical workshop that will leave you excited to learn more! The class will begin in discussion where you can ask all those questions that you have wanted to ask, and share stories about your equine experiences.

Caroline will then lead you through the practice of Applied Zoopharmacognosy, explaining how and why a horse works with a variety of plant compounds. She will help you read responses to aromatic chemicals and you will learn how to look at behaviours that underpin the sometimes subtle responses that guide you into knowing what plant compounds are needed, and in what combinations to restore health.

At the retreat there are many horses with a variety of conditions that will greatly appreciate help. Caroline will work with a selection of horses. On day two she will follow up with some of the horses from day one, so you can see the follow-on process. You will get to discuss what horses select for common conditions, including wounds, immune support, gastrointestinal problems, midges, mites, flies, sweet itch, laminitis, mud fever, vaccine reactions, remedies selected for helping worm burden/prevention as well as other problems. Caroline will end the day with how to work with psychotherapeutic oils.
