How Horses Experience Emotion & Why it Matters for Our Training

Have you ever wondered what your horse thinks and feels? How do they experience emotion?
How should their emotion affect our work with them?

We will never be able to truly understand what a horse feels, we are, after all, a very different species with minds that work differently.

But despite our differences, we have many similarities and scientists study not only the bodies, but also the minds, of animals to better understand people.

In today’s video, we will look at the simple structural differences between the horse and human brain and I’ll explain how while these structural differences show how horses and humans think differently, we may experience similar emotions.

I will also share what science does know about animal emotion and how we can improve our interactions with our horse by becoming better observers of their emotional state.
