April is stress awareness month. This movement is not only for humans, but for animals too. Your horse may not have the same causes for stress or ways to relieve it; however stress is still a large contributor to long term problems. Anxiety in horses can lead to digestion, behavior and cardiovascular system problems. Colic and other stomach complications are also repercussions that can be caused by stress.
1. Socialization – Allow your horse to run and play in the pasture. Horses are social animals and enjoy playing and spending time with each other. Time out in the pasture will also allow your horse time to graze. Grazing makes up to 70% of your horse’s diet.
2. Exercise – Be sure to exercise your horse regularly. Horses can become bored in their stalls and need to spend time working.
3. Diet – Keep an eye on your horse’s diet. Grazing will help to cover a substantial amount of his/her diet. If your horse is not out grazing, consult a veterinarian on how much grain and hay to feed. Over feeding can cause problems such as colic.
4. Human Interaction – Interact with your horse on a daily basis. Horses enjoy the bond developed between horse and rider. As you interact with your horse, use a calm voice and a gentle hand. Horses base their mood on the moods around them.
