Horse behaviour problems are complex, often multi-factorial, and can manifest in a variety of ways.

Equine behaviour problems like bucking, rearing, separation anxiety, handling, or aggression manifest in horse's lives and can be a daily struggle.  In such situations, your horse is struggling too. They are not acting out, being bad, or getting back at the handler. Dealing with the horse's behavioural problems can be frustrating and overwhelming.

You don't have to do it alone.

Learn effective strategies to address these issues and support your horse's well-being.

Our behaviour consultants specialize in resolving undesirable behaviours which are usually rooted in fear or anxiety.  By identifying the underlying problem and adjusting emotional responses, we enhance your horse's experience allowing you to relish your time together.

Wondering if you need an equine behaviourist?

Look for signs such as aggression, anxiety, or worrying behaviour, especially after a veterinarian has ruled out medical causes.  Fear and aggression rank among the most common reasons to seek assistance from a qualified animal behavior consultant. Fear and aggression are the two most common reasons for seeing a behavior consultant, as highlighted by the IAABC Website​
