The Behaviour and Welfare of the Horse (Paperback) by Fraser Andrew F.
Horses play a unique role in human activities for both work and recreation. From the ranch to the racetrack an understanding of their behaviour and needs is vital for man to ensure their well-being. Providing a comprehensive scientific overview of horse behaviour and its relation to welfare this new updated edition includes new developments in the understanding of the relationship between physiology and performance and the neuro-chemical basis of stereotypic behaviour. It is expanded to address the important topic of welfare from both a fundamental and practical viewpoint and will serve as an essential resource for all those studying and working with horses.
