Horse Behaviour Explained Behavioural Science for Riders by Angelika Schmelzer

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.


The reader friendly layout and language make this book perfect for anyone wanting an introduction to equine behavioral science. Even if equine behavior does not especially interest you, this is worth the read--you'll come away with a better understanding of your horse, and it doesn't take very long to get through! -- National Equine Student
