Opportunities to study wild horses in Spain

 

This unique project was set up by ethologist and trainer Lucy Rees to promote the study of equine ethology in Europe through direct observation of a feral herd living in completely natural conditions. We offer this facility to non--invasive research projects, to Equine Science students and veterinarians, to colleges and schools, and to those interested in natural horse behaviour and welfare.

They include:

  • Theory sessions on basic ethological principles and equine ethology

  • Observation and identification of behaviours (the ethogram)

  • Data collection methods and analysis

  • The opportunity to plan and carry out a pilot study designed to answer a particular question.

 

We adjust teaching level according to the students and the duration of the course. We also design courses for special groups, for instance schools, undergraduates or M.Sc. students. Study groups are welcome to bring their own tutor; we provide a guide to help find and identify the pottokas. We can also accommodate and help longer-term researchers.

We constantly need volunteers who wish to help and learn.

ABOUT

LUCY REES

Lucy Rees UK - Lucy Rees Riding

 

Lucy has spent a lifetime working with and studying horses. Through her work as an equine ethologist Lucy has carried out in-depth studies of many wild/feral populations of horses world wide. This has given her a deep understanding of the evolutionary basis for the natural behaviours of wild horses, who have the freedom to express their instinctive, social, emotional, physical and cognitive behaviours. She has a very clear understanding of horse behaviour and how we can best apply that to the training methods and general care of our domestic horses. Lucy also offers insights and solutions into how to deal effectively and compassionately with abnormal behaviours.

BOOKS

Horses in Company
Paperback, 160 pages, 28 September 2017

 

Horses in Company is an in-depth study of the social relations of horses in the wild. The book discusses how, during evolution, the need for collective defence against predators shaped horses characteristic behaviour and reactions. It aims to help the reader understand how in domestic conditions, unnatural resource competitions and stress affect social relations, leading to widespread misinterpretation and misunderstanding. This radically new analysis of equine society is based on the author's first-hand observations, and opens the way to a new understanding of horses at both ethological and practical levels.
