I started my business in 2014, but back then it wasn't called Why Do Horses. Passionate about bringing science-based information to the everyday equestrian, I began writing magazine articles and applying research in practical coaching sessions.
When writing an article, I would always begin with the question 'why do horses...?' I felt that focusing on answering the 'why' question was really about advocating for the horse's needs. Understanding why horses have a need to do particular things also helps us understand the 'what' and the 'how' of horse behaviour too.
Thinking about 'why do horses' became so central to my business identity that I decided to adopt it as a name, in part to keep the focus on that as a core value.
I'm Louise Napthine and this is Why Do Horses. You can find out more about me, my background and my ethos on the About page.
