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.

The Benefits of Equine Technology

 

I’ve read a couple of articles recently about equine wearable technology.

Technology advances all of the time and is all around us in many forms such as veterinary equipment, waterproof fabrics and information technology; ‘wearables’ for animals is set to be one of the fastest growing sectors. Mostly, much of this technology is still out of the reach of the leisure rider but is being employed more and more to improve performance.  The way the technology works is to send feedback about a particular aspect of the horse which, over time, can be collated to inform their management and training.
