Join Alyson and Maddie Sharpe from PB Barefoot Rehab and Retirement Paddock Paradise Livery on all things enrichment based. We'll be addressing the importance of providing your horse with enrichment and how to incorporate our best budget-friendly, renter-friendly, DIY enrichment hacks into your track system. Don't have a track system? No problem, these tricks, tips and hacks will work in a paddock too.
If you've ever wondered how to mentally stimulate your horse to help decrease anxiety, boredom or stress-related behaviours, then grab your comfy slippers and a freshly-brewed tea and join us. Replay will be available to those who have purchased a ticket and have subscribed to the webinar platform.
Please note: we are a paddock paradise (track system) livery and so we will predominantly be talking about enrichment hacks trailed and tested on our track systems.
