School of Equine Herbal MedicineNEW SELF EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMS
MEET THE GRADUATES
The Practitioner Course has been discontinued from the end of June 2019. It is being replaced by a series of self empowerment education programs for horse owners and managers.
These programs will provide them with information they can trust and rely upon to provide effective natural health solutions for their valuable horses.
There is a huge interest in the use of herbs to heal common problems in horses and in preventive natural nutrition and the new programs will allow widespread participation.
The information will be presented so that it can be applied practically and easily – identifying the problem, how to treat it, where to get quality herbal remedies and how and why they work.
Subjects to be covered will include the whole range of common equine problems experienced in Australia, as well as first aid.
Horse owners often turn to herbal medicine because they cannot afford the increasingly high cost of veterinary medicine and are looking for natural alternatives. Timely access is also becoming a problem and also the withholding of veterinary care especially in Queensland if horses are not vaccinated for Hendra.
Students currently enrolled in the Practitioner Course are not affected by these changes.
