This book continues to provide a comprehensive overview of equine behavior and an outline of current advances in our understanding, as well as offering insights into contemporary and future challenges for improving horse welfare and safety.

Completely updated and revised, a new, international, expert editorial team builds on Andrew Fraser's decades of work as an ethologist, veterinarian, historian, horseman, breeder, trainer, conservationist, and field scientist, sharing essential knowledge to improve horse behavior and welfare.

A range of international experts and key opinion leaders have updated this edition to include the effects of noise on the horse's welfare; husbandry; and grazing management, including the identification of harmful plants and issues of climate change. New illustrations and examples bring the book to life and further help to explain equine behavior in a whole range of different situations, including road transport and horse safety during transport. The text covers key issues concerning equipment and the horse's mouth. It gives new insights into genetics, temperament and horse vocalizations and what these indicate. Welfare assessment models are outlined and the challenges presented in different equestrian sports debated. Difficult topics such as euthanasia are covered also.

This classic text remains an essential resource for veterinarians, animal scientists, equine professionals and horse owners.
