2. Understand how the behavioural needs of a horse influence horse welfare
3. Take a detailed behavioural history.
4. Ascertain if a behaviour is normal or abnormal and if abnormal whether the behaviour itself is adaptive or pathological.

6. Be able to implement a basic treatment plan to prevent further worsening of an existing behaviour problem.
7. Be able to understand, demonstrate and explain basic behaviour modification techniques to others.
