Horse and pony behaviour

Here are some key points about horse and pony behaviour:

In the wild horses live in family groups of up to 20 horses, this is called a herd. Horses feel safer when they live with other horses as this is more natural for them. Horses watch over each other while they sleep.

Adult horses often rest for between 7 and 8 hours per day depending on how busy they have been! Horses are able to sleep standing up or lying down.

When a horse holds their head high with their ears pricked this shows they are alert and interested.

A horse with their ears back and flared nostrils is warning you that they are angry and to stay away.
