Horse Psychology [2 days]

This classroom based 2 day course is designed to teach you how horses think and learn. Without knowing the basics of how horses think, respond to stimuli and store memories how are you going to be able to build a successful training session or even a relationship with your horse? And why do they become your mirror?

We will cover in-depth horse psychology, how their biology and evolution shapes their learning, how differently they “see” and process the world around them and how this affects training sessions. There is plenty of opportunity to discuss behaviours you have seen in your own or other peoples horses, and how common behaviours seen on yards can develop, and how easy people label horses as “problem” or “difficult” which then often leads to behaviours getting worse not better! and most of the time  the horse is behaving as they should under the circumstances. We’ll also look at up to date research and findings, & how this sits with some long held views on horse training in both the “traditional” & “natural” horsemanship worlds.

 

This course can be combined with the other modular courses to count towards the Monty Robert’s Introductory Certificate of Horsemanship.
