    I am currently investigating the effect of stress and exercise on the cognitive abilities of horses. We will be evaluating the effect of various types of common stressors and exercise on how well horses learn simple, industry standard learning tasks and then how well they remember what they have learned. By gaining a greater understanding of how stress and exercise interacts with equine learning, we hope to assist horse owners and trainers to develop training methods that maximise learning with a minimum of stress to their horses. We hope that this will improve the welfare of ridden horses as well as enhancing owner safety.
