This unique course was developed by veterinarians at the world-renowned University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The course will address horsemanship from a welfare perspective, within the context of “The Five Freedoms” of animal welfare. We’ll explore equine physiology, behavior and basic needs including housing, nutrition, hygiene and disease management. You’ll learn how to perform basic tasks to assess the overall condition of the horse and identify problem areas. We’ll also examine the specialized needs of the equine athlete and the major responsibilities we as owners, handlers or competitors must assume in order to ensure the health and welfare of our equine companions. Finally, we’ll look several special topics in equine welfare including disaster planning and the international welfare efforts now in place to protect working horses and other equids in key industries such as racing, international competition, tourism and even mining. By the conclusion of the course, you will be well equipped to develop a comprehensive welfare plan for any horses in your care....

I recommend this course to anyone that is working around horses. I’m sure there’s information within the course that is useful for most average owners, barn workers, or someone looking to get a start as a veterinary assistant specializing in equines. I wish the certificate looked a little more impressive or was worded better considering this course ended up being pretty in-depth, and you really do come away with a lot of great info. However, it is an intro course, so I understand as to why it’s phrased the way it is. I suppose it’s better than nothing at all on an application (for anyone feeling the same way), so I will still include it! Overall, I’ve learned a lot more than I was expecting and I feel a lot more confident in moving forward with my career path!

Course is very good. Issue is that I am auditing and it appears that even when I have taken the module quiz, it wants me to pay to show as completed. So I did everything but the module end quizzes. But the course shows as in progress. I have viewed all the Video content and taken the mini quizzes.

Not sure what else to do as I don't want to pay for the course or a certificate.

Content was a bit dry, felt like it was read by the instructor from a book, some visuals but static.

Liked the quiz points but the insertion into the audio/video was poorly done.

Content was strong for a beginner level entry course.

I really enjoyed the course set up. The process is so well organized and time well spent. I wish that this had been a higher level course with more detailed and specific information but over all well worth the time.

Good general course about Equine Welfare.

Although I don´t agree about the left side of horse; I think we must get use to the horse be comfortable in both sides of their body.

Course seems great but you are unable to complete it (even without a certificate) without paying. Only found out after completing the first week of content that I wasn't able to do the quizzes and complete the course.

So avoid unless you want to pay.
