Study the literature of equine personality and play with descriptors.

Everyone loves to play with personality descriptions, but the dimensions of personality remain elusive and intangible. You will compare several approaches to describing equine personality, including scientific and popularized. You will learn how to compile a time budget and acquire an ability to score an animal on a qualitative behavioral assessment. This exploration of equine personality will access reading, videos, and online activities. This achievement will be evaluated by a quiz and written essay assessment. This badge is required for anyone participating at Mustang Camp either as an intern or trainer.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Draw conclusions about the utility and limitations of personality descriptions.
  • Devise ways to create informative personality descriptors.
  • Develop an animal time budget.
  • Score an animal on a qualitative behavioral assessment (QBA)
