Pain is a common issue in horses that can compromise welfare and is frequently linked to behaviour problems that damage the horse-human relationship. Owners, trainers, vets, and other equine professionals are often poor at understanding and recognising signs of chronic pain. Even when people consider themselves to be good at recognising signs of fear, anxiety and pain, research shows that this has little bearing on the likelihood of actually doing so correctly.
In this presentation equine veterinary behaviourist Roxane Kirton discusses the relationship between chronic pain and behaviour in the horse. She looks at some of the current research into pain expression and shares her approach to assessing chronic pain. She also presents one of her case studies involving a pony who displayed aggressive behaviour to both humans and horses.
Pain is likely to be a massively under diagnosed issue and this session is aimed at improving our understanding of pain in horses.
This lecture is aimed at horse owners, students and equestrian professionals interested in learning about how horses learn and training. You don't need any prior knowledge about horse behaviour to watch this presentation.
