Since my childhood, I have always been fascinated by horses. After many years as a horse rider, I have decided to know more about horses from a scientific point of view. Now I´m starting my 3rd year of the PhD degree in Animal Science at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague and I also work as a research assistant on the department of Ethology in Institute of Animal Science in Prague. The topic of my PhD theses is Laterality and directional preference in training of riding horses and I work on it under the supervision of doc. Ing. Jitka Bartošová PhD.
