Equine Responses to Acceleration and Deceleration Cues May Reflect Their Exposure to Multiple Riders
It is logical to assume that horses with multiple riders encounter variation in application of training cues. When training cues are inconsistent, we expect to see a decrease in trained responses or an increase in conflict behaviours. This study investigated the relationship between the number of people that regularly ride or handle a horse and the horse's response to operant cues. Data on 1819 equids were obtained from the Equine Behavior Assessment and Research Questionnaire (E-BARQ), andoi:10.3390/ani11010066 pmid:33396451 fatcat:hatppa2tbzhvxh3bbjv7ob232m
