Horses are “Fight or Flight” prey animals. If it scares them, they will run. Consider your actions with this in mind.
Whenever possible, please WALK in view of the horses and not directly in front or behind them. Sudden movements or flapping objects can look very scary to horses.
Always ask the owner if you may approach or touch a horse.
If the horses ears are forward=happy or scared, ears pinned back=angry, ears twitching=listening
Never feed a horse without permission; your fingers look like tasty carrots, also they may be on a special diet.
