Easy 4 part programme to stop your horse spooking


To understand what’s going on in your horse’s head when it spooks, we have to go back in time………………

Long before any of us thought about sitting on a horse, they learned to survive by running first, and thinking later.  They had to rely on their instinct and learn to distinguish predators very quickly before they became lunch.

The fight or flight instinct is a reptilian response which sits in the cerebellum.  When compared to a human brain, the horse’s cerebellum is large which makes the functions that sit in here very refined.
