Have you ever wondered what is going on in your horse's brain?
Wondered how horses actually learn things?
Why they shy at things they have seen many times before, forget what they have learnt in the past or sometimes seem incapable of learning anything at all?
Why some habits are hard to break and others disappear easily? Why bad habits are learnt so quickly?
What happens inside their brain when they are frightened?
Why they sometimes explode seemingly out of the blue?
Have you wondered whether food reward training improves or hinders learning? Or what happens when we use pressure release training?
Or what effect stress or exercise has on how well horses learn or forget things?
If you've ever wondered about any of these questions then our upcoming series of seminars exploring and applying the neuroscience of learning as it applies to equine learning, cognition and training is for you.
This first seminar is a general introduction to the neuroscience of learning with application to horses. We will share the latest research including research we've conducted recently.
Later seminars will explore the questions posted above and much more.
