For less than the cost of two or three riding lessons (heels down! Forward—MORE forward!) you can learn to understand what your horse has been trying to tell you since you bought him. Wouldn’t you like to know?

Horses communicate via their behaviour. This will be more than a ‘ears-forward-mean-he’s-happy-and-ears-back-mean-he’s-angry’ kind of course. This will be an ethology course, with current horse behaviour research translated into everyday English.

Topics covered

  • How horses communicate with other horses versus with people (hint: it’s different)
  • The equine ethogram
  • Ridden and non-ridden horse behaviour (ethology!)
  • Pain behaviour
  • Confusion behaviour
  • Trained behaviour

Learning Delivery

  • Read articles backed up by current research
  • Watch videos with me and my horse demonstrating
  • Try hands-on assignments and activities
  • Share your findings with other learners
  • Final quiz to test your learning
