Introduction to Horse Behaviour Consulting Mentorship
Each 8-week mentorship provides mentees with ongoing online chat, video exchanges, documentation, links, and scheduled weekly live chats via video meeting.
Mentees can discuss their own cases or any others, ask questions about application and theory, ask for tips and advice on overcoming specific challenges, and be guided toward even higher levels of professionalism and effectiveness. The mentors are there for the mentees, and offer all help and discussion that each mentee finds useful.
Starts January 15, 2018, meets online Monday evenings at 8:00 pm GMT
(this mentorship takes place on UK time). The first online meeting is January 22.
Last day to register is January 21 at 5 pm Pacific.

Are you already consulting in horse behavior and would like help with more specific cases? Are you new to horse behaviour consulting? The IAABC is pleased to offer a first-ever opportunity in the industry: a horse behavior consulting mentorship. This program will focus on the consultation process and help you manage and resolve equine behaviour problems through guided online discussions, sample case studies, useful handouts, and more. Working with mentor Justine Harrison CHBC, you will have the opportunity to work through an example case study from start to finish. You'll also be able to ask questions about your own cases, discuss problems with Justine and other mentees, analyse videos, and meet weekly for face-to-face live, on-line group support.
Justine has 10 years' experience working as a horse behaviour consultant and more than 40 years' experience riding, teaching and training. She has competed successfully in various disciplines including show jumping (up to 1m 30) and dressage at medium level.
Justine writes regularly for a number of magazines internationally and is the resident behaviour expert for Horse magazine in the UK. She also acts as an expert consultant in legal disputes and court cases involving equine behaviour.
