This year we spent fife fantastic days when visiting the ISES 2018 in Rome. The conference was held in exactly the same military area where Caprilli developed the “light seat” 150 years ago. The environment was simply beautiful, at pleasant 27°C summer days, and an incredible Italian Catering which didn’t leave any wish unfulfilled.
The ISES provides a platform for scientists and practitioners to discuss recent, scientific advances on horse training and management. Also this year we enjoyed discussing our research results. Our team was composed of Prof. Dr. Konstanze Krüger, the PhD students Isabell Marr und Laureen Esch, the Bachelor student Sophia Voigtländer-Schnabel and our team support, Kate Farmer (MSc.), from St. Andrews University, Schottland. We presented the following talks:
PARAMETERS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL BONDS IN HORSES (Riccarda Wolter, Konstanze Krueger)
EVIDENCE THAT RIGHT SIDED HORSES ARE MORE OPTIMISTIC THAN LEFT SIDED HORSES
(Isabell Marr, Kate Farmer, Konstanze Krueger)
And the posters:
SOCIAL LEARNING IN HORSES the STIMULUS differs between INDIVIDUAL and SOCIAL LEARNING not the MECHANISM (Konstanze Krueger, Kate Farmer)
DIGITALISATION IN ACTIVE STABLES? (Sophia Voigtländer-Schnabel)
