Presenter Bio: Gemma combines her time between research and outreach on behalf of the The Horse Trust and seeing clinical equine behaviour cases where she is based at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh. After working in ambulatory practice Gemma moved to the Dick Vet where she completed a rotating residency programme in the equine hospital, becoming an advanced practitioner in equine medicine, alongside an MScR investigating horse veterinarian interactions. Subsequently she completed her CCAB (certified clinical animal behaviourist) and her PhD thesis ā€˜Investigating the stress responses of horses undergoing veterinary careā€™. As the Veterinary Liaison Officer for the International Society for Equitation Science, Gemma is passionate about improving interactions between horses and people, specifically regarding the application of learning theory. In her spare time she has competed up to advanced level endurance on a homebred horse as well as enjoying competing in affiliated dressage and eventing.

Presentation Details: Adverse early life experiences in children are well recognised risk factors for poor mental health and even increase likelihood of a prison sentence as adults. We also have an increasing body of evidence of their long term negative effect in a range of species from rats to cattle. This webinar will explore the science of how early life experience impacts neurophysiological development in a range of species, including the horse. We will then focus in on how we can maximise healthy neurophysiological development in foals and youngsters, including evaluating critical periods such as weaning.
