Overview

The type of contact between people and animals has a strong impact on animal welfare. A horse can perceive a negative handling experience fearfully. When a horse is fearful, its stress responses increase and its well being is reduced.

As you explore this module keep in mind the following questions:

  1. How should risk and hazards be avoided when handling and moving horses?
  2. How do recommended guidelines compare to your own experiences with handling animals?
