The following is a list of the tutors who are currently teaching on the course:
Jayne is a full time Equine Podiatrist and founder member of the Equine Podiatry Association. She is especially interested in equine anatomy and physiology and how dysfunction in the horse’s body can affect the hooves.
Dr Richard Vialls
Richard is a full time Equine Podiatrist and founder member of the Equine Podiatry Association. He has a strong research interest in pathologies. He specialises in the treatment and prevention of Laminitis, a condition with which he has had a great deal of experience.
Ben Hart is an equine trainer and specialises in training horses using the science of behaviour. His work is based around an understanding of the workings of the equine mind and wherever possible the use of positive reinforcement to motivate and encourage good behaviour in the animals with which he works. Ben uses the science of behaviour to enhance the communication between humans and animals providing long term solutions to any equine behavioural problems.
