Equine veterinarian and online course creator

I have been an equine vet for over 15 years. Foals have a special place in my heart and are my favourite patients. But rather than to treat their problems, I want to prevent problems. By expanding the knowledge of horse owners, I believe I can help more foals. During my studies I was part of the foalbrigade, an intensive care unit for sick foals at Utrecht University. Even now I treat many sick foals. Additionally I have written many articles about foals and foaling for, Hoefslag and Bit, some of the biggest platforms about horses in the Netherlands.

What’s the price of the online Foaling Course?

The foaling course is one-of-a-kind. No other online foaling course offers such comprehensive knowledge with practical tips and tricks. 

Think about it. Your mare gets sick because the placenta was not fully expelled, because you didn’t have the knowledge to identify that the placenta was incomplete. Two days later your mare spikes a fever and becomes lethargic. You call out the vet who discovers a missing piece of placenta. Your mare needs to be transported to the clinic so she can be flushed multiple times a day, is on medications and her feet need cooling to prevent laminitis. Luckily, she can return home one week later. The vet bill? Over 1500 euros. 

This online foaling course costs €149 (159 dollars or 131 pounds due to currency fluctuation, these prices may vary). But this means you can prevent your mare and foal from getting sick and avoid an expensive vet bill.


With this online foaling course I have helped many horse owners, mares and foals. Below you can read reviews from previous participants.

After two hours, I had to drag myself away from the screen!

With two foals due and having had the horses in my own yard for two years, I began to get concerned about the imminent arrival of my foals. When my horses were still boarded, I could rely on the yard owner who usually had previous experience with foaling. I was delighted when I found out that Iris was starting an online foaling course and signed up straight away!

Logging in is super easy and quick. The videos and text are very clear and educational! The first time I logged in, I had told myself to just go through the material for an hour. After two hours, I had to drag myself away to feed the horses. I am ready for the foals to arrive!

Surprisingly educational and very accessible by design

The online foaling course by Iris van Gulik, an equine vet, really hits the bull’s eye. It is beautifully designed and contains a lot of applicable information that is very useful for a broodmare owner. Even if you are just interested in breeding without a set plan, it is a useful course. The structure is very logical, the explanations are informative, clear, and accessible. The videos are nicely depicted, easy to follow, and have very clear corresponding explanations.

It is a remarkable feat for someone without a media or teaching background. This course calls for more. If Iris is able to design additional courses in the same manner, she can really help horse owners prevent many issues and shed light on the welfare of horses.

I knew the basics, but I still learned a lot 

The course is very pleasant, clear, and organized. I bought it because I wanted to be fully prepared for the birth of my foal. I wanted to know as much as possible so I would know what I could do myself and when to call the vet.

I learned everything I needed to know about foaling and my foal from the course. Although I already knew a lot beforehand, I still learned a lot from it.
