Training Research at Mustang Camp

In it's efforts to provide the most ethical, humane, science-based training of wild horses and burros, Mustang Camp also fosters research into the fundamental issues of equine taming. On this website, you will find webpages about our research projects.

What is lateralized fear and how does it impact training? We investigated.

We looked at graduated exposure to novel objects introduced with either positive or negative reinforcement. The results surprised us.

An initial attempt to describe the state of training that exists among equine rescue organizations, we did a survey!

Does exposure therapy offer hope for anxious animals? This was our 2016 pilot project.
