How to create rewarding training programmes for your horse is the topic of Redwings Horse Sanctuary’s latest evening of free expert talks and demonstrations.

All are welcome to book on to the To Treat or not to Treat seminar, which will take place at the charity’s Aylsham Visitor Centre, north of Norwich, on Wednesday 25th April from 6.30pm.

Redwings’ Equine Behaviour Manager Sarah Hallsworth will be sharing her top tips on how to use food effectively as part of a horse’s handling training. Using practical exercises and compelling case studies, Sarah aims to give owners the confidence to tackle specific behavioural issues and improve their day-to-day interactions with their horse.

Rehoming Manager Rachel Angell will also be revealing how Redwings devises unique training programmes for its rescued horses getting ready to find loving new homes as part of the charity’s Guardianship Scheme. There are currently 500 Redwings horses living in Guardian homes and attendees will be able to find out how they could apply to rehome a rescued horse.

Andie Vilela, Education and Campaigns Manager, said: “After years of training rescued horses and readying them for lives in Guardian homes, our experts are hugely experienced in working with equines from many different backgrounds with a multitude of behavioural issues.

“They’ll be on hand to answer questions, address any worries and share their tried and tested training tips, with the hope that everyone will be able to go away with the knowledge to put their own rewarding training programmes into practice at home.”
