Aggressive behavior in horses is rarely straightforward to resolve. These cases are often complex and involve numerous contributing factors including pain, fear, unsuitable feeding, handling, training and a challenging environment. In this presentation equine behavior consultant Justine Harrison will discuss the different types of aggression we commonly see in horses and look at two very different cases involving aggressive behavior. She will discuss how many of the behavior problems commonly seen in the domestic horse are a natural consequence of the stress created by modern management practices. Justine will identify the key areas to consider when working with horses, the techniques we can use to rehabilitate the aggressive horse and examine how small adjustments to management can have a profound effect on horse behavior and improve their welfare.
