No Stress: Cooperative Care for Horses
Cooperative care has been the norm in zoos for decades, but the horse world has been slow to follow. Force and restraint have been the primary tools used to subject horses to care and to keep humans safe. But, teaching horses to participate in their own care is safer and more humane. Unfortunately, there are not yet many protocols detailing these training processes.
Watch this Session and see real-life examples and detailed protocols of horses trained in the positive paradigm to collaborate with de-worming, hoof care, veterinary procedures, and more! Low-stress, low-fear is the wave of the future—and the future is here!
