Webinar – Surviving The Livery Yard – Minimising stress and Maximising wellbeing on the livery yard with Dr Tamzin Furtado
Reducing livery stress – for both yard managers and clients
What do you think of, when you think of livery yards? Livery yards can have quite negative connotations, and people often talk about cliquey owners, difficult yard managers, and crazy rules. Why is this, and what can be done by both yard managers and their clients, to maximise both horse and human happiness on livery yards? This talk will give the results of a two-year indepth study of livery yard management, and invite your experiences too.
