John Moore is a renowned equine development professional in America. Some may call John a horse behaviourist, although he does not like the title… he prefers to think of himself as providing equine educational opportunities for humans to understand what our horses are thinking, feeling, and why.
Dr David Marlin has asked John to share a few of his thoughts and learnings about horse behaviour with us.
The interview was conducted over Zoom as John is based in Colorado in the USA.
In the coming months, we hope to have John on to discuss various aspects of how horse behaviour is important to how we keep and care for our horses. We hope to cover topics including; when science meets behaviour, demographic differences, horses are ever naughty, spotting a horse’s reaction to pain and other interesting subjects.
If you have any questions for John or ideas for topics you would like him to cover then, please let us know in the Members’ Facebook Group or by email – firstname.lastname@example.org
A little about John Moore
John Moore makes his living both as an equine clinician and as a musician and has become well-known in both fields.
On the horse side, John tours the world as an equine clinician, conducting clinics for riding schools, private organizations, mounted police departments and major equine events. He has become well known for rehabilitating horses with behavioural issues, as well as taking performance horses from many different disciplines to the next level of performance through his ability to read horses and present information to them and their riders in a way that is more understandable and usable in their chosen discipline.
John also hosts a series of riding camps in Europe with his good friend and colleague Dr. Gary Potter of Texas A&M University, as well as 2 and 3-week classes in the U.S. where students can put their training and knowledge to use on a cattle ranch. John not only works with western riders and horses, he also works extensively with dressage riders and riders of various other disciplines when travelling abroad. He has been sought by thousands of riders, professional as well as amateur, to help them develop a more effective training program for their chosen discipline of riding. His background of extensive travel and study abroad, as well as a lifetime association with horses and great horsemen, has served him well in this line of work.
