The first part of this course is an exploration of the equine evolutionary journey with some key messages that link directly to keeping the modern horse healthy and happy. The focus will then switch to the basic principles of genetics , with specific reference to health, disease and simple traits like coat colour. With the fundamentals of session one and two fresh in our minds, the day culminates with an in-depth exploration of equine performance and behavioural traits, with a focus on the interplay between genes and the domestic environment.
