Dr. Vivian Gabor – Language of the Horse

Meet Vivian Gabor, horse trainer, equestrian coach, passionate horsewoman and scientist with a doctorate in Equine Science and in-depth scientific knowledge and a wealth of experience on how horses communicate and learn.

Do you have what we call ‘horse sense’ or do you sometimes get the feeling that you and your horse don’t speak the same language? Haven’t we all had these moments where we thought ‘how can I get through to my horse’ or ‘why is my horse behaving in this way’ and wouldn’t we all benefit from building more of a shared understanding when working with our equine companion? If you are interested to learn how horses really think and learn and what makes them tick, and if you are keen to work on your own (body) ‘language’ than this clinic is for you.

Understanding how horses communicate and learn forms the basis to address potential issues your horse might have, such as separation anxiety, being pushy, spooky, feeling anxious, bolting or bucking. However, even if your horse does not show any such behaviour, once you have that shared understanding it will be much easierfor you to develop a more effective working relationship with your horse which ultimately influences motivation and builds performance on the ground and in the saddle.

In her clinics, Vivian – in a very unique way – combines research and practice so that people can better understand and motivate their horse. Behavioural issues of the horse are addressed through the concept of consequence and reward and participants will become more aware of their body language and what they can do to send the right signals at the right time. However, what will be most interesting in this course is that you will not only learn ‘what to do‘ but ‘why you should communicate in a certain way’! This will help you to retain the knowledge from this course and will make it much easier to continue the work once you are back home in your own paddock.

Vivian will only do four clinics and one speaking event during her Australian tour. So don’t miss this opportunity! We only take six participants for this event, which will allow you to benefit from a unique learning experience and ensure that you get plenty of one-on-one time with Vivian.


This clinic has a free-flowing format and is very much based on the individual needs of each participant. The clinic will usually start with a discussion about the objectives each participant is looking to achieve and will then continue with some work on the ground and in the saddle.
