About this course
Horses evolved over millions of years to have perfect visual capabilities for surviving and thriving in their natural habitat: wide open plains, prairies, and steppes. But how well do the horse's visual super-powers equip it (or not) to cope with life in the domestic world?
This transformational online course provides an in-depth overview, in easy to understand layman's terms, of everything that's currently understood (and also that which is not yet well understood) about equine vision. The content, length and format of the course are perfect for busy trainers, instructors, riders, vet techs, caretakers or anyone else who needs to understand what the world actually looks like through the eyes of the horse!
"There are so many fascinating things about horses that we just don't seem to know enough, if anything, about. Equine vision is certainly one of those things. Kim was able to expand my knowledge on the subject and facilitate a meaningful live video discussion about how vision may affect our interactions with horses. The knowledge and insight in this course are invaluable!" - Anna Fox, Equus Enlightened

“I highly recommend Kim Hallin’s course, Through the Eyes of the Horse. Kim presents insightful research that impacted me personally to change the way I work with my horses. Understanding how my horses see is allowing me to 'be' with my horses in ways that support building trust, confidence and becoming a safe place for them on the ground and in the saddle. This course was extremely valuable to me and I believe my horses will appreciate and benefit from my new understanding." - Sandy Corrigan, Transformation Companies LLC
