STUDENTS TO LEARN FROM EQUINE EXPERT

 

A world-renowned equine expert is to give a lecture demonstration to students at the University of Lincoln later this week.

 

Equine behaviourist Andrew Maclean of the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre in Victoria will be at Riseholme Park on Friday (15th October).

 

He will speak to students and guests from the National Equine Welfare Council at 1.30pm in the conference hall.

 

“Andrew competed for Australia in three-day eventing and is perhaps uniquely qualified to assess the scientific basis of equitation,” said Professor Daniel Mills of the university’s animal behaviour clinic.

 

“Not only is he both an accomplished rider and a highly respected animal scientist,  his doctorate examined the role of reinforcement in training and the importance of consistency in training.”

 

Members of the press are invited to attend and should in the first instance contact Daniel Mills BVSc PhD CBiol MIBiol ILTM MRCVS, Professor and RCVS recognised specialist in veterinary behavioural medicine.

 

Email dmills@lincoln.ac.uk for an invitation and further details.
