Until now, very few conventional horse training methods have received scientific substantiation. Often, studies that do exist contradict each other, which, especially in the case of behavioral studies, is partly due to insufficiently mature scientific methodology. Andrea’s experience participating in and overseeing research projects allows her to teach students in an interdisciplinary, practice-relevant, responsible way. This sharpens the understanding of the horse’s natural resources and underscores the importance of a professional, scientifically-based and economically efficient handling of the horse in all types of training.
Andrea’s exhaustive review of the literature, hands-on training with experts and participation in scientific research has directly influenced the contents of this unique Equine Coach training program. Every participant who enters this program can be assured that the knowledge he or she gains is appropriate, understandable, based on scientific facts, and designed to increase competence in Evidence-Based Equine Communication® (EBEC®) methodology.
