Horse training refers to a wide variety of practices that teach horses to perform certain behaviors when asked to do so by humans

Horses are trained to be manageable by humans for everyday care as well as for equestrian activities from horse racing to therapeutic horseback riding for people with disabilities.

Historically, horses were trained for warfare, farm work, sport and transport. Today, most horse training is geared toward making horses useful for a variety of recreational and sporting equestrian pursuits. Horses are also trained for specialized jobs from movie stunt work to police and crowd control activities, circus entertainment, and equine-assisted psychotherapy.

  While the number of training techniques is large, and the goals of training too numerous to count, basic animal training concepts apply to all forms of horse training. The initial goal of most types of training is to create a horse that is safe for humans to handle (under most circumstances) and able to perform a useful task for the benefit of humans.

A few specific considerations and some basic knowledge of horse behavior helps a horse trainer be effective no matter what school or discipline is chosen:

Safety is paramount: Horses are much larger and stronger than humans, so must be taught to behave in ways that will not injure people.
Horses, like other animals, have a different brain structure from humans and thus do not have the same type of thinking and reasoning ability as human beings. Thus, the human has the responsibility to think about how to use the psychology of the horse to make the animal understand the goals of the human trainer.
Horses are strongly social herd animals and, when properly handled, can learn to follow and respect a human leader.

Horses, as prey animals, have an inborn fight or flight instinct that has to be adapted to the needs of humans. Horses need to be taught to rely upon humans to determine when fear or flight is an appropriate response to new stimuli and not to react by instinct alone.
Like most animals, a young horse will more easily adapt to human expectations than an older one, so human handling of the horse from a very early age is generally advised.
