Abstract
The goal of this project was to design a tool that facilitates the work with and handling of horses in Scandinavia.

After reading some literature and making visits to three different horse related businesses the choice were made to look at natural horsemanship. The goal of natural horsemanship is based on mutual respect, trust, communication and understanding. The idea is that you want to give the horse the most natural environment as possible for them to live in. A new goal was set. Which was to design a tool that facilitates the work with and handling of horses in Scandinavia by encouraging the horse’s natural behaviour.

The goal of this project was to design a tool that facilitates the work with and handling of horses in Scandinavia.

After reading some literature and making visits to three different horse related businesses the choice were made to look at natural horsemanship. The goal of natural horsemanship is based on mutual respect, trust, communication and understanding. The idea is that you want to give the horse the most natural environment as possible for them to live in. A new goal was set. Which was to design a tool that facilitates the work with and handling of horses in Scandinavia by encouraging the horse’s natural behaviour.

An idea process quickly took off and by the initial idea generation a focus could be set to the ideas which were to the benefit for the horse rather than to the horse keeper. I chose to target me to the feedings of horse because this is something that is currently based on a very unnatural way.

Horses in the wild graze 16 to 18 hours a day, but the domesticated horse is often feed through a breakfast-lunch-dinner schedule that is not only unnatural for the horse, but also causes gastrointestinal problems such as colic and esophageal impaction.

The results is the feeding bucket Kraftig which prevents the horse to eat his food too fast, which reduces the risk of stomach pain and intestinal problems. The bottom of the bucket consists of four plateaus and in between these valleys that the feed will fall in to. These valleys are designed so that the horse has to work a little bit more than usual to pick up the food. (Less)
