Equine Research Foundation

The Equine Research Foundation is a nonprofit public charity described by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. It is not a private foundation, as it is a nonprofit organization described in sections 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is run by a Board of five Directors.

The purpose of the Foundation is to further scientific and public knowledge about equine learning abilities, perception, behavior, training, care and welfare and, thereby, improve human-horse interactions. All studies are noninvasive and rely on positive reinforcement.

The public can participate in positive reinforcement clinics, gain knowledge through the Foundation's publications and consultations and make contributions that qualify for a charity tax deduction.

Advancing Equine Knowledge

The Equine Research Foundation supports research aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of the learning, cognitive and perceptual capabilities of horses. The study of cognition is concerned with the mental processes, representations and skills involved in thinking and learning. Researchers at the Equine Research Foundation are finding that horses have more advanced cognitive abilities than was previously thought and can solve complex problems. These studies show that horses are thinking creatures that respond best to humans who acknowledge their minds and emotions. General and scientific horse articles are available to those interested in learning more about horses and why horses behave as they do.

Positive Reinforcement Horse Training Clinics

Positive reinforcement horse training clinics are available off-site. Participants learn how to train horses using positive reinforcement, eclectic horsemanship, herd behavior and psychology. Positive reinforcement training is an excellent complement to other training methods and helps build better relationships between horses and humans.

Consultation

Phone consultations with an Equine Research Foundation expert are available to anyone interested in learning more about horse behavior, cognition and perception, or training and handling.

The Equine Research Foundation also offers consultation and superior court-approved expert witness services for select equine-related legal cases. To speak to the Foundation about these services and rates, please email or call (831) 662-9577.
