In this presentation, Trudi Dempsey will share her work with the Behavior Team at Redwings Horse Sanctuary in the UK. Attendees will view video documentation of the arrival of the “Bodmin Boys,” a feral group picked up from a moor in Cornwall in the South West of England. Next, Trudi will show how she and the Behavior Team prepared an unhandled group for welfare/husbandry handling, using gentle methods and then R+ based training once individual equines showed they were ready to cooperate in their own care. Finally, attendees will see how Redwings’ incredible team of veterinarians have developed their least stressful methods for emergency situations.
