Course Description

This course will cover many aspects of equine nutrition ranging from anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal tract to dietary management of horses/ponies affected with nutrition-related disorders. This is course is designed for self-directed study with minimal tutor input, and as such emphasis is placed upon peer discussions of the topics presented in each section of the course. This course is not designed to have a large amount of tutor input as this is an open access course that attracts tens of thousands of participants. However, tutors will endeavour to answer the main queries relating to the understanding of the lecture materials and to provide a summary of the key questions raised in each of the weekly topics and clarification of any misunderstandings.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course! As a foster and adopted "mom" to a variety of animals, I took this course in hopes of expanding my knowledge in order to someday foster or adopt horses/ponies. I came from a very limited/almost zero knowledge of horses and finished the course with a lot of knowledge and confidence that I could feed a proper diet to horses and ponies, even some with special needs. The material was presented in an easy-to-grasp manner and the PDF slides were very helpful. I really loved the (non-graded) revision quizzes as a prep for the graded quizzes! Dr Jo-Anne Murray, the instructor, was personable and I appreciated the time she and the rest of the team ~ Jayne Roberts, Wendy Watson, Joan Kulifay, and Dr Anne Stevenson ~ put into the course and the course forum answering questions and creating a pleasant environment. The only "complaint" I might have is that Dr Murray seemed a little stiff in front of the camera. Her... Thoroughly enjoyed this course!

The only "complaint" I might have is that Dr Murray seemed a little stiff in front of the camera. Her class communications via the forums and in the weekly briefings were very positive, engaging and encouraging and I would have loved to have seen that express itself more vibrantly in the video lectures. She obviously knows her subject well, so seeing her speak a little more spontaneously would have been a treat and would have made the course a touch more engaging. Her delivery was professional and the slides and class information presented were thorough and helped me to feel like less of an absolute beginner and more prepared to take on the challenge of caring for a horse. I would gladly take further courses on this subject from Dr Murray and her team. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to expand knowledge on horses and ponies or anyone generally seeking more knowledge. As for the University of Edinburgh ~ this is the fourth course I've taken from University of Edinburgh and I've found all of the courses fun and interesting. I'm highly impressed with this institution and its instructors. Looking forward to more courses from them in the future.
