This is the most enjoyable course I have ever attended. Thank you Kelly and your organisation. ~ Becky Walker


A 2 day classroom based course – students will question how horses think, see and feel and come away thinking in a whole new light. Definitely gets you thinking!

It is a very interactive course with students encouraged to contribute. By the second afternoon students are studying and discussing actual case studies. On this very popular weekend course your studies will include:

  • How to approach ‘problems with horses’
  • How behaviourism relates to our work with horses
  • The uses of positive and negative reinforcement
  • The uses of pressure/release training
  • How horses learn / Horse sense

You will need to be a member of the Intelligent Horsemanship Association so Join IH now (if not already a member) so you can start looking at all the brilliant educational material in our members area

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the Horse Psychology weekend. This was my first IH course and I had no idea what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. A complex subject but I think the course was pitched at the right level and has given me encouragement to read more. I was also thrilled to meet such a variety of people too, who all share the same quest to put ‘intelligence into horsemanship’. ~ Krystyna Rogers

Dear Kelly
I feel that I must write to you following the weekend horse psychology course to thank you. It has to be one of the most enjoyable weekends I have had the pleasure of spending. The course material was not only fascinating but pitched at the right level and much of the material tangibly demonstrated within the breakout groups. No one was made to feel in any way awkward in the positive and negative reinforcement demonstrations and it was an admirable illustration not only of the techniques but of the timing too. ~ Dr S Randell
