Following on from Amanda’s first talk in the series, vet Chloe will look at what happens when learning goes “wrong” and behaviour problems develop. With a practical approach to behaviour, Chloe will look at when to seek the help of an equine behaviourist or when to get the vet involved. Focusing on ridden problem behaviours, box rest, post-traumatic stress disorder and vet / needle phobias, this talk will explain what is going on in your horse’s brain and how we can alter that to prevent or correct behavioural issues. Finally, Chloe will look at the exciting area of psycho-pharmaceuticals and how medication can be used alongside a behaviour modification plan in certain cases.
Chloe has been an equine veterinary surgeon for 12 years, has advanced training in equine behavioural medicine and is currently training for her Equine Clinical Animal Behaviourist qualification. She works at Celtic Equine Vets in Minstead where she enjoys working with horses with behavioural issues, particularly those with vet phobias. Chloe has three rescue horses at home, with a range of backgrounds, and has extensive hands-on experience of working with challenging horses.
