Our students visited @pavo_horsefeed today as part of their module “Animals & Business” - next to an interesting presentation about product innovation & marketing at #pavo they also got some insights into the production of horse feed during the tour of the facilities #learning #excursion #realcompany #learnfromthebest #studyequine #studyanimals #animalhusbandry #vanhalllarenstein

Our students defended our study program in front of the AISHE (assessment instrument for sustainable higher education) committee today. We got some homework before we will get the ⭐️⭐️⭐️Rating but we are confident we are on a good way of educating our students about sustainability in their specific sectors. #sustainability #AISHE #futureoftheearth #thinkgreen #vanhalllarenstein

Ever wondered how the market of horses is developing and changing? What are the most sold colours of horses and do more dressage or leisure horses get sold? Our third year equine students have worked with ehorses.com (ehorses.nl - paardenkoop en -verkoop & ehorses.de - Europas führender Pferdemarkt) in order to set up a market monitor that will show exactly this kind of data. By analyzing more than 500.000 advertisements collected on the platform, the market monitor will provide more insights on the development of the equine sector. The students have helped ehorses with the challenge of what kind of data should be in the market monitor through surveying current customers of ehorses as well as non-customers about what they would find interesting. We can't wait for the market monitor to launch. #practicalwork #reallifeproject #project #business

HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?
Two third year equine students of Van Hall Larenstein were wondering whether the commonly 20% weight rule is actually true. In order to find out more about how the weight of the rider affects the horse they invented a sort of “fat suit” for the riders through which they could increase the riders weight to 15% and 20% of the horse’s estimated weight and afterwards measured the horse’s heart rate and impulse and symmetry of movement in a simple riding task. By using the equestic saddle clip they obtained some surprising results- some horses showed an increase in heart rate suggesting that their task of carrying the rider got harder but one horse actually showed next to the increased heart rate an increase impulsion as well as an improved symmetry when comparing movement of the right and left legs. The results were already observed for a rider weight of 15% of the horses’ body weight – meaning that even though effects of the riders weight might be very individual for each horse, the commonly used 20% weight rule might have to be rethought. #rider #ridersweight #heavy #measurements #equinestudies #research #minithesis #horsestudy

Today we had the pleasure to hand out two bachelor diplomas to our equine students Chantal van Bekkum and Noraly van Hemert. Always a sad but happy moment because on the one hand we are sad to let the students go and on the other hand we are excited about the things that lie ahead of them! Congratulations to both girls! #congratulations #graduation #vanhalllarenstein #equinebachelor

Can the Franklin Balls help riders with disabilities? In an interesting mini-thesis two of our equine students investigated how Franklin Balls could be used in the training of riders with low level impairment. During the use of the Franklin Balls the riders posture and seat improved and all of the five test riders liked the experience of working with the balls. One rider with spasms in the legs actually experienced the legs to relax through the use of the balls. Overall some promising results that might show a new use of the newly popular Franklin Balls for horse riders. #franklinmethod #franklinballs #equinestudies #researchproject #vanhalllarenstein #minithesis #study #horses

Our third year equine students have helped I&S Sporthorses, a company run by Stefan and Iris Rozendaal, to set up a large scale breeding programme by calculating different scenarios. This company was an interesting client for the students because they make use of the newest reproductive techniques like Embryo Transfer (ET) and Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). In this way I&S Sporthorses will keep the generation interval low, so more good quality foals can be bred out of super genetic dam lines. I&S Sporthorses stands for top quality dressage horses that are bred based on theory and knowledge. #businessproject #reallifeproject #businessdevelopment #financialconsulting #scenarios #newbreeding #newmethod #consulting #thirdyear #studentswork #studentsknowbest

Do not want to leave your horse at home when studying in Velp? There are very nice places to keep a horse around here as student @valeriya.katrich shows with this nice post

Our 2nd year students had their assessment #freemovement and #freejumping today in which they have to score the #jumping ability of #horses as well as their conformation and gaits. The score the students give to the 🐎 will then be compared to the scores the 🐎 received from experienced judge Jacques Verkerk and this way the students receive their mark. The exam took place at Stal Brinkman in Twello! #jumpingstars #showjumping #jumpingability #linearscoring #conformation #gaits #judging #horses #vanhalllarenstein #equinestudents #equinesportsbusiness #hbopaard #pferdebachelor #studyhorse

Hopefully you all had a good start in the new year. Today all students and teachers are back in 2018 and we dive straight into the work again. Lectures, projects and practicals are continuing- still 4 left weeks and term 2 is finished. For some of our students this means big changes as the third years will start their minor or half-year placement in term 3. #vanhalllarenstein #newyear #bigchanges #student #studentlife #studying #2018 #gettingstarted #allreadytogo
