Resource Library - Stress Prevention

For a horse to feel safe, he needs companionship, freedom to flee at a moment's notice from threats, and the knowledge that food is always available. Without these, his body produces stress hormones that can lead to a vast variety of health issues. Inflammation becomes elevated and the microbiome can suffer, potentially leading to Obesity, Digestive disorders, Cushing's disease, Immunity issues, and more. Changes in behavior can also be seen as a result of stress.

The articles below, as well as the highlighted Resources above, can offer greater insight into how stress impacts horses and how it can be avoided.
