This subject allows students to investigate and evaluate the issues that currently affect the equine industry in general and equestrianism in particular. In the course of this subject students will develop and enhance their communication skills using a range of modalities suitable to the topic and audience in question. Students will also gain an appreciation of the complexities of the equestrian world, including impacts of tradition, the complexities of integrating differing cultural and traditional beliefs and how these integrate to facilitate human behaviour change. By the end of this subject students will be able to evaluate contemporary research findings from a growing number of academic disciplines in relation to equine industry practice and the equid, and be able to communicate effectively with equine-based practitioners in order to enhance existing practitioner understanding and assist with effecting any necessary changes across a wide range of equestrian disciplines.
