Applied Equine Behaviour is the name given to the study of the innate behaviour of horses and its application to welfare and training.
The philosophy of Applied Equine Behaviour is to promote welfare and training methods that understand and respect the horse.
To provide education that is accessible and affordable
- To see horse ownership become safer, more ethical, fun and rewarding.
- To enable people to achieve their goals and get the results they want.
Aims & Objectives
When we are in the presence of a horse we are always training it in some way. We are constantly influencing how our horses respond by either encouraging or discouraging certain behaviours, although we are often unaware of it.
The ultimate objective is to teach a deeper level of understanding about the factors that influence equine behaviour and help people to :-
- Understand the horse's needs, how he interacts and learns.
- Communicate more effectively
- Improve safety
- Develop a relationship with the horse based on mutual respect and trust.
