Causes of stress in horses/ certain situations can be very stressful for some horses including: farrier visits, routine dentistry / teeth rasping, travelling, prolonged confinement e.g. box rest, weaning, 'breaking' / training,visiting or riding in a new environment and new experiences e.g. meeting dogs a new structure in the yard exposure to new horses and people.
How do horses react to stress?- Most horses will react instinctively in the face of perceived danger to escape or flee from the threat and protect themselves / if they are unable to get away they might respond with aggression.
What can I do for my horse? If you think your horse may be showing signs of stress first contact your veterinary surgeon who will be able to tell you if there is a medical reason for the behaviour/ your vet will also be able to discuss management options with you.
