On August 23 and 24, DEFHR will host a two-day seminar designed to help cruelty investigators feel confident working with and handling equines. Any cruelty investigator who does not work with horses on a regular basis would benefit from this instruction. This course will prepare you to feel more self-assured around horses, have a better understanding of the equine mind, and be better prepared to determine when a horses needs are not being met. Topics covered include: Case Histories, Horse Handling and Safety, Hoof Anatomy and Hoof Problems, Use of Height and Weight Tapes, Color and Breed Identification, Dental Care of Equines, Trailering Tips, Body Condition Scoring, Nutrition, Examining for Illness and Injury, and Minimum Horse Care Standards.
Participation is limited, so we encourage you to sign up today! Both days will be 9:00AM – 4:00PM. Registration is $100.00 and includes lunch. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-854-5037.
