Welcome to Gut Health and Colic Prevention!
Hello and welcome to our Gut Health and Colic Prevention short online course!
We are so happy to have you with us – and for joining our learning community as part of The Horse Portal. We are pleased that you have joined our offering for the racing industry on gut health and colic prevention. There are unique challenges facing the racehorse and its management, so this will be an important focus for the discussions. I am a Facilitator in this course, and I am here to help you with the navigation and course material. We are pleased to let you know that we will be having an expert in Equine Nutrition coming to join our class in Week 2, and industry specialists in racing veterinary care in Week 3.
The online environment is your classroom. Here you will find the daily announcements, the learning content, and other resources that you may find of interest. You can log on and off at times of your convenience. There are no set times when you must be online. I will be using the daily announcements to communicate with the class so be sure to check on these each day.
Our course is 3 weeks with 15 units:
Week 1 (Mon to Fri) – unit 1 through 5
Week 2 (Mon to Fri) – unit 6 through 10
Week 3 (Mon to Fri) – unit 11 through 15
Before we get started I recommend that you go through our quick tutorial – it will help you to navigate the site and get the most out of your experience.
