Whilst studying at Reaseheath, Chris was given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become involved with a project for the BBC’s Countryfile programme.
Chris explained: “I was given the chance to train four completely unhandled, feral Exmoor foals who were owned by Countryfile presenter Adam Henson. Through the application of theory covered in modules, including applied behavioural theory and behaviour and welfare, my team and I successfully trained the foals to undertake daily tasks to a level where they could be handled with ease.
“The Exmoor project was extremely valuable to my current role as it gave me the experience of working with nervous horses. This has been essential when
working with the behavioural projects at Redwings.”
