Overview

A basic understanding of behavioral science will provide riders and horse owners with an abundance of valuable information with which to design an optimal living environment for their horses. The underlying premise is that when a horse’s living conditions reflect its natural needs, when it is permitted to be itself, not only are its well-being, health, and performance enhanced, but it is less likely to develop any vices. In this book the author introduces the reader to behavioral science in an understandable and stimulating way, combining horse-specific behavior with practical stable management. It is a must for all horse lovers who want further insight into the true nature of their four-legged friends.
