UKRS tiny.jpg


Online plus practical training



2&3 August online (evenings), 1 day practical


Dates & Venue:

7 August Practical - North Yorkshire / County Durham

The 3 theory and practical days are accompanied by filming, training manuals, data sheets and everything you need to support your distance learning (assignments and case studies) You will also receive a free starter kit of botanicals.

​The training helps animals to heal themselves physically and emotionally using botanical compounds – essential oils, floral waters, herbs, minerals and more.  Animals have been performing “Zoopharmacognosy” for centuries but humans removed this ability for horses when we domesticated them and placed them in lush paddocks and stables.


Through our training you can bring the outside world to the horse once again and allow it to make choices for its own self-healing and self-medication.  We have worked with many horses with the following problems, all with great success: gastric, ulcers, mud fever, arthritis, injuries, muscular health, laminitis, hormonal imbalances, bladder, liver and kidney.  We also have success of working with stable vices, confidence issues, separation anxiety and much more.

​This is the career course, enabling you to work with other people’s horses as a Practitoner.

​Payment options:

​Payable in full £1950 (6 weeks before the training)

​Payable with deposit of £500, 12 monthly payments of £120.33 per month

​or 24 monthly payments of £60.42 per month.

Other Species


Canine and Feline £250

Agricultural Animals £250

You might wonder why we separate species in our training? Because whilst this subject is fascinating it is complex too and you must know the botanicals that different species prefer and also the different routes of self-selection by each species and how.  If you study all species at once we feel the quality of learning is affected.  We prefer this methodical approach.

We also offer 1 day training for animal keepers who want to work with their own animals in this way.  The fee is £150.  Please contact us for more information.
