Welcome to the

Ridden Horse Behaviour Wiki!

This website has been developed at Nottingham Trent University, with funding from Vetnet Lifelong Learning Network. The main aim is to promote better understanding of ridden horse behaviour.

Same horse, same rider, different behaviour.


This resource is based on video clips and descriptive text, and purposefully features amateur horse / rider combinations . There are also some interactive elements, and on each page there is a discussion area (indicated by a speech bubble at the top): do feel free to add comments but please keep them polite and constructive!

Our focus is on describing and assessing the behaviour of the horse rather than training methods or rider critiques.
