ABC Horse Library

The purpose of this website is to provide equine video examples of some of the more common terms we use in behavioral science. Building the site will depend on a collaborative effort involving anyone in the horse community who is interested in submitting a video.

The videos will be approved by a panel of volunteers who are experienced in behavioral science. If you think you have a video that fits anyone of the listed terms, please feel free to submit. This will be an opportunity to learn from visual examples, share your profile, and to connect with other trainers.

The terms colored green have one or more videos already. Check these out to get an idea of what this site is looking for. The terms colored orange are works in progress.

The terms with an asterisk beside them, do not have a description yet.
