My name is Lucía Pérez Manrique. I'm a Mexican horse vet specialized in clinical behavior and welfare. I've been into horses since I can remember. Professionally I have some scientific publications on horse behavior and welfare. I've been teaching at the Vet School in the UNAM for 16 years now.
My goal is to produce and share scientific information with trainers and "non-scientific" horse people in order to improve our training programs, facilities, handling, performance, and therefore their physical and mental health. I also work in my small animals behavior clinic.
