Equine Anxiety, Stress and Nervousness
Most horses will experience stress or anxiety at some point in their life. A few occasional moments of nervousness are understandable and can usually be managed without future consequences. However, equines that are frequently stressed or anxious can become a hazard to themselves and the humans that ride and handle them. Unaddressed stress can eventually cause serious health and behavioral issues.
Stressful situations can vary from training or hauling to changing your feeding schedule or having difficulty getting along with a pasture mate. Because each horse reacts to and displays stress differently, it’s important to be able to recognize it in order to prevent or treat it with a healthy calming supplement, if needed.
Horses that are experiencing frequent anxiety or stress may engage in one or more of the following vices or behaviors:
- Stall walking, fence walking or weaving
- Shaking, twitching or trembling
- Eye rolling
- Kicking, bucking or rearing
- Spooking or bolting
- Weight loss
- Cribbing and wood chewing
- Tooth grinding
- Yawning, licking and chewing
- Pawing or tail wringing
- EQUS (equine ulcers)
- Diarrhea and/or frequent urination
- Elevated heart rate and sweating
