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 to ensure their well-being.
Providing a comprehensive, scientific overview of horse behaviour and its relation to welfare, this book includes new developments in the understanding of the relationship between physiology and performance, and the neuro-chemical basis of stereotypic behaviour.
I would recommend it to everyone with an interest in, and love of, horses - The Veterinary Record"
