SCENAR EQUUS UK PROFESSIONAL TRAINING COURSES
The very first SCENAR EQUUS courses to be held in the UK.
These Equine Scenar specific courses are being run by:
- Jill Hick. Professional equine trainer and riding coach, with 30 years experience and a SCENAR Therapist.
SCENAR Equus will focus on an holistic view point; topics such as anatomy and conformation, equine behaviour, equine dentistry, farriery, physiology and saddle fitting, amongst others, are all taken into account.
Jill’s home and stables will be the base for the SCENAR Equus courses. Situated in a very picturesque and peaceful part of Kent, Jill lives close to the village of Brookland, on Romney Marsh; approximately 6 miles from the historic town of Rye.
Jill will be running two different courses this year.
Here is an amazing opportunity to learn and safely train by means of a ‘hands on’, practical course. Both have been designed to facilitate a better understanding of horses, as well as having the very real prospect of learning about these fascinating animals and being able to treat them in a considerate, efficient and professional manner.
The first course is aimed to give therapists a basic level of understanding and will include topics such as correct SCENAR protocols, the horse’s anatomy and physiology, his behaviour patterns, body language and various common problems likley to be encountered, for example, badly fitting saddles and bits.
The second level will be for therapists who wish to treat horses professionally. We will be covering anatomy and physiology in greater depth, together with subjects such as foot balance, muscle damage and the rider’s position, plus correct protocols and settings for the immune and lymphatic systems, swellings and how to treat acute or chronic injuries.
Everyone who attends these unique courses will go onto the SCENAR Equus National Register; showing their level of training. Therapists obtaining their Professional certification will also be given the opportunity to become recommended associates for SCENAR Equus.
To become a recognised qualified Equine SCENAR therapist, you will need to undertake both the Level 1 and Level 2 courses.
The training programmes will cover:
BASIC LEVEL 1- (2 day course)
- Introduction to Equine Anatomy and Physiology
- Behavioural patterns & horse body language
- Horse and human interaction
- Common problems caused by saddles, bits, foot balance, gait, riders position and possible problems caused by unbalanced riders
- Treatment protocols: Variable device settings, using electrodes, the healing blanket and bandages
Both afternoons will be spent in the stables and yard, undertaking practical experience using SCENAR on the horses, whilst under the full guidance of the trainers. It is most important that the morning’s studying is fully understood; establishing the relationship of these aspects to the application and effectiveness of an equine SCENAR treatment.
Cost of Level 1 training course £380.00
PROFESSIONAL LEVEL 2 – (2 day course)
- Advanced Equine Anatomy and Physiology
- Advanced Behavioural patterns & horse body language
- Advanced horse and human interaction
- Detailed coverage of common problems caused by saddles, bits, foot balance, gait, riders position and possible problems caused by unbalanced riders
- Advanced treatment protocols: Variable device settings, using electrodes, the healing blanket and bandages
Both afternoons will be spent in the stables and yard, undertaking advanced practical experience using SCENAR on the horses, under the full guidance of the trainers. Once again, it is very important that the morning’s studying is fully understood; establishing the relationship of these aspects to the effectiveness and application of an equine SCENAR treatment.
Cost of Level 2 training course £380.00
Basic level training dates:
20th & 21st September 2014
18th & 19th October 2014 (Devon, private tuition)
7 th & 8th February 2015
Professional level training dates:

More dates are to be arranged, please re-visit the website for future news.
If you are interested in undertaking one of these courses, please go to our BOOKINGS page and complete the form. We will then get in touch with you directly, to discuss the course in detail and supply details for payment etc.
Once fully qualified in ‘SCENAR Equus’ at Level 2, practitioners will be able to choose whether to be listed on our National Register as fully endorsed, recommended associates of our organisation. For this service, there is an annual membership fee of £50; primarily to cover the administration costs in supplying ‘SCENAR Equus’ referrals nationwide. In order to raise public awareness about Equine SCENAR therapy, we will shortly be committing to a regular monthly ongoing cost to optimise our website on Google and other search engines. Experience has already shown us that this will result in a lot of enquiries, both by phone and email. The National Register will then enable us to make suitably approved, professional therapist referrals.
These courses do require you to purchase a book that will be used extensively throughout Level 1 and Level 2. It would also be most beneficial for you to learn the contents, prior to starting the course. Understanding elements like the ‘Anatomy & Physiology’ of a horse will make the courses very much easier to understand. Click here to order the book from Amazon.
The courses include all refreshments and lunch will be provided.
Please can we be notified of any special dietary requirements in advance.
There is no student accomodation on site at the Equus Training Centre, however there are two local places to stay that are within very easy walking distance:-
Dean Court Farm is a B & B www.deancourtromneymarsh.co.uk
Puddock Farm Pine Lodges www.puddockfarmpinelodges.co.uk
Other recommendations for nearby accomodation or eateries can be found on http://www.ryesussex.co.uk
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquiries or questions.
Thank you for your interest.
SCENAR Equus will be running masterclasses throughout the year, in a variety of subjects e.g. the importance of correct bitting, pleasure horses or static and dynamic conformation.
Why would you need to be aware of all such factors when you are using SCENAR to treat horses?
SCENAR therapy will not be able to work to its maximum capacity if the owner of the horse you are treating for, say, muscle atrophy keeps putting a badly fitting saddle on his back, or indeed, if his bit is pinching his mouth. For instance, the latter example will cause the horse to pull his head back and upwards; over-developing the muscles in the underside of his neck. As a direct consequence of the head and neck being held in this position, the horse’s back will drop and the quality of his movements are then negatively affected throughout his body. Ultimately, a badly fitting bit would cause this horse to be in a lot of pain.
Please check for future dates and masterclass details.
