Variables affecting the prevalence of behavioural problems in horses Can riding style and other management factors be significant?


, : Variables affecting the prevalence of behavioural problems in horses Can riding style and other management factors be significant?. Applied Animal Behaviour Science 133(3-4): 186-198

The effects of riding style and various management factors on the prevalence of stereotypies and other behavioural problems among 346 mixed-breed saddle horses (phase 1) and 11 Arabian horses (phase 2) were analysed through a questionnaire answered by owners. In phase 1, the questionnaire data were partially validated through 2-min observations of 81 (23.3%) of the cases. indicate that horses primarily ridden in the English style were reported to be significantly more likely to display stereotypies (p<.1), problems when transported (p=.1), multiple behavioural problems (p<.1), and to have more restrictive stabling (p<.1) than horses ridden with other styles. When only.
