Confinement in the stables

When a horse is in the stables for a long time it begins to have negative behavior patterns, for example they begin to kick the walls or bite the wood, they can even directly influence performance, since to the extent that the horse does not be satisfied with your life we ​​will have no chance of achieving something positive with our animal.

Without a doubt, horses are animals that need paddocks and pasture, since it is necessarily vital for their health that they can spend a lot of time loose, without feeling in captivity, so the attitude becomes aggressive, in many cases self-destructive, but it is that the situation for a horse in the little space that a box has can end up being completely dangerous.

In general, many keepers fall into the painful attitude of leaving the horses aside, which are forced to spend whole days locked up and this is atrocious mistreatment, since the animal must have the space to stretch its legs, graze, It is even recommended that you have the possibility of sharing with other horses, since it is very difficult for animals to live in solitude, they generally require living in a community.

Enclosed horses go through moments of depression, it is the same as when we have a chained dog, animals need the space to feel free, we must not forget that beyond their domestic condition, we always have to think that the space of an equine by nature it is the field.
