World Horse Welfare’s incredibly popular webinars have grown to over 50 thought-provoking subjects and all are available free to view on the newly updated World Horse Welfare Advice Pages. Topics this year have included such diverse themes as social media and horse welfare, managing arthritic changes in ridden horses, understanding aggression and nutrition myths and marketing.

Having 32 years of experience in the equine field, Emma has ridden since she was four and has since enjoyed four wonderful family horses. Emma’s professional career includes a MSc in neuroscience and a PhD in neuropsychology; working on professional yards, directing at an equine learning centre, teaching riding, and helping many people with their horse’s behaviour.
