Behavioural development of foals is strongly governed by the mare during early post-natal life. Scientist, researcher and conference Co-chair Janne Winther Christensen, PhD from Aarhus University, Denmark states that “it is possible to reduce the fearfulness exhibited by foals through social transmission from the mare early in the foal’s life”.

Christensen’s study of twenty-two pairs of mares and foals investigated whether mares can be used to modify fearfulness in foals via social transmission of object habituation (lack of reaction to new potentially fear inducing objects).

Pregnant mares were habituated to four standard fear-eliciting situations using desensitization methods and a combination of positive and negative reinforcement.  The fear eliciting situations involved touching and walking over plastic on the ground, walking past colourful objects, having a plastic bag wiped over the body and having an umbrella held over the body.

Many people agree that dressage is rife with subjectivity and that there currently exists a large degree of disenchantment amongst both participants and audiences with the FEI judging scale (also known as the German Training Scale which was created in 1912) being based on a mixture of subjective and objective elements.

The fundamental objective of dressage is to develop through a standardized progression of training methods, a horse's physique and ability.  The aim is to produce a horse that is calm, supple, and flexible, and confident and willing to perform to its full potential.

Under FEI rules, dressage is judged on 8 elements – precision, rhythm, suppleness, contact, impulsion, straightness, collection and submission.
