Abstract: This project is about designing a questionnaire for the equestrian world, designed with the usual behaviours of people and horses in mind when interacting. Its purpose is to help determine the suitability of the horse and to help improve the relationship between people and horses by issuing a report. The working hypotheses suggest that feedback, with information on the horse's behaviours, as well as the possible intervention that derives from it, contributes to the well-being of the binomial, as the person will acquire a horse more suited or will know what aspects to improve. To verify the hypotheses, a longitudinal study will be carried out where two groups of participants will be selected, with their corresponding control groups, and two different types of users: the prototypical equestrian clients and those who are not. The sample, made up of 64 participants, will be representative of the distribution by sex according to federative licenses (25% men and 75% women), while it will be segmented to 50%, according to the two types of users and needs: those who want to acquire a horse and those who want to improve the relationship with the one they have. The possibility of administering the questionnaire via the Internet will help to launch a cross-sectional study that will allow to collect sectoral data. It is to be hoped that the hypotheses can be verified, although the main difficulty is that the two types of users usually have different knowledge and experiences in relation to horses.
