Behavioral Problems

The best horse professionals recognize that caring for horses and training them requires thorough knowledge of their character, their nature, how they act among their species and how they react to the presence and attitudes/actions of humans around them.

Despite of all the positive changes in horse care and management throughout the years, behavioral problems in horses have increased.

At Equine Planet we can help you recognize the symptoms, find the cause and try to solve the problem, thereby dramatically improving the well-being of your animal. 


The most common cases of behavioral problems in equines are:

  • Aggression towards other animals or humans
  • Continuous walking or circling around in the stable
  • Eating feces, soil or sand and other non-food items
  • Foal rejection
  • Loss of appetite due to separation or loneliness
  • Obesity
  • Pawing or kicking
  • Self-mutilation
  • Weaving
  • Wood chewing or wind sucking


 Remember: It is much harder to correct an archived behavioral problem than it is to prevent it!
