desensitization

Working through fears by building trust.

"to make him familiar with all sorts of sights and noises; and if the colt shows sign of apprehension at them, (9) he must teach him—not by cruel, but by gentle handling—that they are not really formidable". (Xenophone II)

Equine Ethological Needs

Horses have three main ethological needs: 

1. to live socially as part of a herd

2. to graze freely

3. to travel great distances

We may replicate these behaviours and fulfill these needs for our equine partners, but understanding the natural behaviour of a horse is paramount in engaging in their partnership.
