The yawning boredom in the stable:
Horse keeping always presents us with new challenges. This should be as fair to horses as possible and at the same time offer optimal training opportunities. Reconciling these two factors is often very difficult. Most riding horses today are kept in the classic box position. However, this posture is mainly based on the needs of the rider. If the horse owner decides to keep the horse in a box, he must provide the horse with additional daily activity and exercise. Today we would like to give you 4 tips on how to get rid of boredom in the stable. Of course, the tips we have mentioned never replace contact with other horses, exercise or even daily grazing.
Causes of boredom in horses kept in stalls:
Horses are herd animals and it is in their nature to travel long distances. These two factors are often forgotten. In classic box keeping, the horses stand isolated from each other in their box for most of the day, usually to avoid injuries. Not only their physical needs but also their mental ones are neglected. In the wild, horses often play with their peers and are almost always looking for food. Therefore, as owners, we have to take responsibility for ensuring that our horses get the activity and exercise they need.
