“A horse is a horse, of course”, but what does this really mean? Through looking at best available scientific evidence that is critically sourced, a different picture of horses emerges. Can we allow horses to be more than what we simply want them to be? Learn more about the fundamentals of equine behavior, mental health, and other needs, along with human barriers to understanding them.
