The purpose of this thesis was to illuminate the current experience of intrinsic motivation and any experience of personal development in eight different human-horse interactions. Semi-structured interviews were used to examine issues such as: What in the human-horse interaction motivates the interviewees? Is the human-horse interaction primarily based on internal motivation? What kind of intrinsic motivation is perceived? Is basic psychological needs met? Does the human-horse interaction provide experiences of personal development regarding the different self-structures? The results show that the human-horse interactions generally were based on intrinsic motivation and that the interviewees had a desire to understand the horse as well as a desire for a unit-esteem. All the interviewees felt that they had developed as persons through their human-horse interactions. Keywords: motivation, intrinsic motivation, human-horse interaction.
