About the Event

The Horse’s Brain and Behaviour

This webinar is all about how the horse’s brain works and how this influences training and performance.

Come and join us for an interesting and informative presentation from Amanda Barton BSc, PhD on how the structure of the brain determines how horses learn and what influences their behaviour and progress in training.

During the talk we will look at the ways in which the brains of horses and humans are different (and the same!), we will explain the horse’s natural flight and fight response and discuss some specific ways in which you can improve your horses ability to learn, improve responses to your aids and optimize your training sessions.

Amanda will also explain, from a neurological perspective, why it is impossible to have a ‘naughty horse’! She will also cover the human/horse nervous system connection and how the interplay between these affects the ability of the partnership to learn and develop.

Amanda is a UKCC Equine Endurance Coach and Pony Club Coach. She has postgraduate qualifications in Animal Behaviour and specialises in equine rehabilitation and rider biomechanics. She has experience with most equine competitive disciplines as well as western riding, Icelandic gaited horses, carriage driving and natural horsemanship. She runs private sessions and clinics at her training centre at Brockenhurst in the New Forest.
