ISES 14th Equitation Science Conference
Associate Professor Janne Winther Christensen
Janne Winther Christensen is an Associate Professor in the Behaviour and Stress Biology group at Aarhus University, Denmark. She has studied behaviour of Przewalski horses in the Askania Nova Reserve in Ukraine, and her fascination of wild equids and the similarities in behaviour between wild, feral and domestic horses has formed the basis for her research. Janne has conducted a number of research projects on fear reactions, habituation and training of horses. Her current research focuses on (i) maternal influence on the development of fearfulness and learning capacity in foals, (ii) social behaviour and welfare in relation to housing and management, and (iii) human-animal interactions.
