Intro to Horse Veterinary Medicine - The Senses and Their Role in Equine Communication (One of Three)
Hilary Moore Hebert
In this multi-day class we will learn how horses use their unique anatomy, senses and herd mentality to communicate with each other and humans.
US Grade 4 - 7
We will have a “lab” course to show and experiment with how horses respond to the following senses connected to their nervous system: Class one: EYES - Sight/body language Class two: SKIN - Touch/handling Class three: EARS - Sound Class four: NOSE - Smell We will also discuss how a horse’s herd nature and wild instincts as a prey animal develop their “language.”
Students will learn how horses communicate and recognize the reactions of domesticated horses at a horse farm. They will learn how horses position their body, vocalize, react and “hear” others with all four senses.
Hilary has over three decades of experience working with horses. She owns a 15-horse barn and is a professional Dressage rider, as well as a mother and former journalist. Hilary has taught for over two decades and is an instructor and learner judge with the United States Dressage Federation.
Assessments OfferedStudents will be asked to participate in class, by answering questions and asking their own during our lab-like setting that allows a virtual hands on experience with horses.
