Environmental Enrichment

21 February 2020

With this wet and windy weather we are experiencing, a lot of horses are confined to their stables. When horses are confined for long periods, they can get bored and restless. A wild or free-roaming horse travels around 25 miles a day and a pastured horse can clock up 8 miles a day. In the stable? Not a lot!

To help make being stabled less tiresome, environmental enrichment involves small changes we can make to take the horse a little nearer to its origins as a free-roaming, herd-living, obligate herbivore.

Instead of hanging the hay in a net at eye level, feed hay from ground level and divide into several portions in different parts of the stable so the horse can move from one to another, mimicking how horses graze.

Stabled horses are not employing their incisors to bite off their food, so compressed forage blocks are ideal. MeadowBrix are 1kg blocks of compressed grass and the horse has to gnaw and chew on them mimicking natural grazing. Feed them whole and dry from the ground and they are great boredom busters.
