EQUINE BEHAVIOUR AND RESEARCH QUESTIONNAIRE

(E-BARQ)

Welcome to the E-BARQ development page

What is E-BARQ?

The Equine Behaviour and Research Questionnaire (E-BARQ) is a survey designed to collect data on horse behaviour, management and training.

E-BARQ's Development

C-BARQ

Now with data on over 80,000 dogs, C-BARQ provides dog owners and professionals with evaluations on their dog's temperament and behaviour.

Take C-BARQ

Fe-BARQ

The more recently developed Fe-BARQ, will tell you how your cat's behaviour compares to others. Take the Fe-BARQ now and find out how your cat compares.

What's Included?

E-BARQ will investigate all aspects of horse behaviour, management and training.

Behaviour

E-BARQ will investigate horse behaviour relating to riding, handling, ground work and at liberty.

Management

How you house, feed and work your horses will be examined.

Training

By looking at training types and frequencies, E-BARQ can investigate relationships between training, management and behaviour.

How Things Stack Up

After completing the survey, horse owners will be taken to a page that shows how their particular horse compares to others.

Owners can then re-take the E-BARQ at 6-monthly intervals to keep track of their progress - a great incentive for setting positive goals, regardless of your horse's age, breed or your area of interest. 

If you would like to stay up to date with the development of this important tool, please complete the form.

You will be the first to know when E-BARQ is available!
