- One of Australia’s most recognised horse trainers Mr Mark Langley to visit Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga
Charles Sturt University equine students in Wagga Wagga will have the opportunity to learn from one of the country’s most experienced horse trainers.
Mr Mark Langley’s methods have changed the way people behave around horses and develop a deeper connection with their horses.
The event on Friday 23 October will be held at the Charles Sturt University Equine Centre in Wagga Wagga.
“Our facility benefits not only our students but the wider Wagga Wagga community as we are able to host a range of events, from seminars, showcases, competitions and guest speakers,” she said.
“The centre facilitates a range of events each year and we are fortunate to be able to provide a venue for the use of people, with a range of teachings and opinions, in the equine and horse industries.
“Participants are able to attend a variety of events and the University can showcase the great Equine Centre we have on offer.”
Charles Sturt students and Wagga Wagga residents will be able to watch Mr Langley (pictured) in action as he is presented with two problematic horses he has never met before to demonstrate horsemanship insights, training techniques and horse philosophy and psychology.
“Everything we do with a horse can cause an increase in anxiety,” he said.
“Understanding and addressing this anxiety is very important if we want a horse to feel good about what it is doing with us.
“People can get great results by addressing how horses are feeling and directing their thoughts rather than by just moving their body or adding more pressure.”
Mr Langley will give a presentation on Friday 23 October from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Charles Sturt Equine Centre on Agriculture Avenue.
Tickets for the event can be purchased via the TryBooking website.
