  1. (Customer confirmed) -

    This training is great! The videos are simple and short, you never pick up. The speakers are fascinating and have found the right balance to speak to both professionals and amateurs. Everyone will learn a lot about horses and what science has shown so far. This makes it possible to move away from beliefs, anthropomorphisms, all too often false certainties which circulate in the world of the horse. I am sure that this Mooc will change the approach of each person who follows it. Congratulations for this quality work which will help horses to be better understood and humans to bring them more well-being and to improve their relationship with them. I recommend this Mooc to everyone!

    courses and videos are very well constructed. Despite a long experience as a show jumping rider, I learned a lot. Well done !

  3. corre33 (Customer confirmed) -

    Very interesting module with immediate implementation of certain parts. Others surely need to re-read or review the videos to find their daily application. Bravo to all the animators!

    Very interesting module
    However the question on the levels of studies did not seem relevant to me
