Nature or Nurture – Which Creates the Better Performance Horse & More from Equitation Science Conference

We know that a person’s childhood and early development plays a large role in their beliefs and behavior as an adult.

Could the same be true for our horses? Does the length of time they spend with their dam, their interaction with other horses, and their early experiences shape the “horse they become?”

This is a question I’ve had for a long time, so I was excited to meet Juan Carlos Rey at the Equitation Science Conference in Rome last week and hear he is working to answer these questions.

You’ll hear my brief interview with Juan Carlos as well as with two other researchers from the conference in this week’s video.

In addition to learning about the role of early development in horses, you will also hear surprising research on horses’ use of shade during hot summers, and why we need to pay more attention to chronic pain in our horses.
