ISES aims to facilitate research into the training of horses and other equids to enhance equine welfare and improve the horse-rider relationship.
Riders need principles from an ethological approach to training by gaining knowledge and insight into horse behaviour, its learning and cognitive abilities. The aim of the 12th ISES conference is to assess the answers and tools you can provide them.
The ISES conferences serve as platforms where latest research findings and their application in practice can be communicated and discussed. ISES is especially encouraging submissions in the following areas:
- Health and safety of horses and riders during training;
- Improving performance across disciplines through acknowledgment of the horse’s temperament and its learning abilities;
- Understanding horse’s learning and cognitive abilities to improve training.
- Understanding and measuring working horses’ welfare;
- Means to reach and communicate with riders on equitation science;
- Topics of interest to Equitation Science will be considered
Abstracts must be submitted before February 15, 2016.
