Equine Thermal Imaging Courses
Equine thermography courses for practising veterinarians, animal
physiotherapists, laser therapists and equine professionals.
Equine Thermography (otherwise known as thermal imaging) is a non-invasive method of measuring heat emissions from the body, quickly identifying problem areas and accurately locating the source of aches and pains.
When coupled with a certified equine thermographer, thermal imaging cameras can quickly identify nerve damage, bone injury, undiagnosed lameness, muscle damage, tendon stress and soft-tissue damage in horses.

With Thanks to Foxhill Livery Yard
Our practical exercises take place at Foxhill Livery Yard. The yard is situated in the hamlet of Aldsworth, on the edge of Stansted Estate.
Boasting 75 acres of prime grazing land, Foxhill is equipped to be able to deal with all horses young and old. Current liveries include para-riders, historical reenactment and affiliated competitors.
Our equine thermography courses are ideal for those wanting to become certified thermographers within the field of veterinary thermal imaging. Successful completion of our courses will enable delegates to use infrared cameras to capture equine thermal images.
Conforming to ISO 18434 and ISO 18436 standards, our equine thermography courses enable delegates to start using thermal imaging as an invaluable tool for detecting problems areas (caused by inflammation or neurological injury), assessing training performance and monitoring injury.
iRed training courses are delivered by industry experts, each with many years of teaching experience.
Our instructors have delivered hundreds of accredited thermal imaging courses, seminars, workshops and presentations since 2002. Courses have been delivered to multi-national organisations, global brands, universities, local authorities and small businesses throughout the world.
By working closely with leading educational institutions such as the University of Portsmouth, we’re able to ensure our courses are are constantly up-to-date with the latest techniques and practices from industry.
Our equine courses are taught by Elaine Hall, a certified thermographer and equine specialist. Elaine has trained globally with some of the world’s leading veterinary thermographers; and is an active member of the UKTA, Veterinary Thermal Imaging Society, American Academy of Thermology (AAT) and International Equine Thermography Association.
