From Dr. Anne Bondi: Look out for a great article in next week’s Horse and Hound magazine – how to recognise pain in the ridden horse from studying its facial expressions. A recent study carried out at the Animal Health Trust by Dr. Sue Dyson that was supported by World Horse Welfare and the Saddle Research Trust has shown that there are certain common expressions that horses in pain often show and that horse owners should be aware of.
