Let's Talk Equine - Understanding equine behaviour and how your horse or pony learns

15 April 2024
Type Event Proceeding

On this episode of Let's Talk Equine, which took place on Tuesday, 9 April, host Wendy Conlon, Teagasc Equine Specialist was joined by Andrea Etter of Belmont House Stud in Co. Offaly. Andrea first joined the series in its 5th edition back in 2020 when she identified her ‘top picks’ of colts and fillies of that year’s foal crop, now in their fourth year of life, and we revisited them now.

Up for discussion was a brief reflection on the thinking behind the mating plans in 2019, the qualities and characteristics these individuals displayed as foals, and the ups and downs of their progressions since. Andrea shared her own thoughts on breeding and production from her personal experiences providing plenty of ‘food for thought’.
