Inspired by the book " Horse brain, human brain" from Janet Jones, Ph.D.
and "Understand horses" :courses.understandhorses.com/courses/understanding-the-equine-brain
and several videos, articles and other books I read about this.
This is the start on the journey of the horses brain and how it is similar, but also very different to our human brain. I am starting this journey here with some interesting facts.
Hopefully, these facts will give you some "oh "effects and will be helpful for you to understand some behaviour of your horse better. Enjoy the journey to your horses brain. : )
Why do I spend so much time on research and study?
As a horse bodyworker and Coach for riders it is essential for me to stay up to date to expand my knowledge. This is very beneficial for my work with you and your horse.
My treatments are successful and effective because I have the knowledge about anatomy, biomechanics BUT also the brain and nervous system of the horse.
Through my energetic work I am connecting to horses nervous system. I need to interact with the horse constantly, to get the the responses that the body needs to release tension, relief pain and get back into a balanced state for body, mind and soul.
So here are some facts about the horses brain you may not have heard of:
I hope you gained some useful information from these facts. Next time I will start with the senses of a horse. There is a lot to know about their eyesight, hearing, smell etc. that will help to understand why they behave the way they do in certain situations we all have experienced with our horses quite often.
More understanding results in better and more horse orientated communication and training.
For more happy horses and riders!
For the love of horses,
