3rd International Conference

Michigan, USA 2007

There were 17 peer-reviewed research papers and 6 posters. A tour and demonstration of equine biomechanics was held at the Mary Anne McPhail Center with Hilary Clayton PhD who demonstrated (e.g. the use of pressure assessment to gauge rein tension). A practical session was conducted at the MSU Horse Teaching & Research Center (HTRC), demonstrating the correct application of learning theory in horse training. The symposium closed with a seminar where video tapes from natural horsemanship workshops were evaluated and the pros and cons of round pen work discussed.
