Bonnie V. Beaver

editore: Academic Press

pagine: 414

Equine Behavioral Medicine provides an essential resource for those who work with, study, and provide care to horses.

Cavalli allo specchio. Viaggio nella mente dei cavalli per conoscerli, addestrarli e gestirli in scuderia

Paolo Baragli, Marco Pagliai

editore: Pisa University Press

pagine: 251

La mente del cavallo controlla il suo comportamento con gli stessi meccanismi psicologici degli altri animali e dell'essere umano. Se anche spesso si sente parlare di "arte dell'equitazione", non possiamo ignorare che il comportamento, la psicologia e l'etologia del cavallo sono scienza a tutti gli effetti. La relazione che abbiamo instaurato con quest'animale presenta evidenti criticità, dovute alla mancata conoscenza dei meccanismi della mente che ne regolano il comportamento. Avere accesso e poter comprendere le nozioni scientifiche di tali meccanismi, permetterà a professionisti o semplici appassionati di instaurare un canale di comunicazione efficace ed efficiente con il proprio cavallo. Solo così sarà possibile avere cavalli tranquilli, che si sentono sicuri ad averci accanto, e questo garantirà il loro benessere psichico e il miglioramento delle performance in gara o durante una bella passeggiata.
